Authentication Options

Background - Comparing Integrated Windows Authentication and Forms Authentication

When you install the portal, you will have a choice of using Integrated Windows Authentication (or what is sometimes called 'Single Sign On' ) or Forms Authentication. It is important to understand the differences between these authentication options prior to installation so that the correct choice is made at installation time. It is possible to change the authentication option after installation, but it is easier to consider the options and make the correct choice prior to installation.

Regardless of the authentication mechanism the users must be providing Active Directory credentials because SCSM only supports Active Directory authentication. Claims-based authentication methods, basic auth, etc. are not options for authentication due to this dependency of SCSM on Active Directory for authentication.
