Perspective 5.1 or Later: Enable Windows Authentication

Perspective 5.1 and later versions continue to support Windows authentication (non-SAML authentication); however, it is available for Perspective only and can no longer be enabled through Service Manager.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you wish to use single sign-on authentication for all Perspective modules (Perspective, Dispatch, Dashboard, and/or Web Portal) you must enable SAML authentication. See the What is SSO and How Do I Get It? article for more information.

  1. Open the config file. By default, this file is located at C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Perspective5.1\PerspectiveServices. 

  2. Locate the <WindowsAuthentication> tag.

  3. Delete the false value in the tag and replace it with true.

    Note: You cannot enable both Windows authentication and SSO in the Perspective_default.config file by changing the <SSOAuthentication> tag’s value to true.

  4. Save the file.

  5. Reset IIS to complete the configuration.
