Configuring Authentication Using Web Services


Using Web Service Authentication requires an enabled Vidyo API license.

To configure Web Service Authentication:

The Authentication page only allows you to configure Web Service Authentication if you have the API license enabled.

  1. Log in to the Admin portal using your Admin account.

    For more information, see Logging in to the Tenant Admin Portal.

    The Users page displays by default.

  2. Click the Settings tab.

    The License page displays by default.

  3. Click Authentication on the left menu.

    The Authentication page displays.

  4. Configure your VidyoPortal to use your LDAP server.

    For more information, see Configuring Your VidyoPortal Tenant to Use Your LDAP Server.

  5. Select Web Service from the Authentication Type drop-down.


  6. Enter the URL of your authentication server in the URL field.

  7. Enter the user name and password for your web service.

  8. Click Connection test.

    If your connection test fails:
    • Verify that the user name and password are correct.
    • Verify the connection to your Web Service.

    Normal users cannot log in to the VidyoPortal until Web Service connectivity is restored. For security reasons, there is no fallback to the VidyoPortal database.

    A successful connection test is required to enable the Save button on the lower part of the screen.

  9. Apply authentication to specific user types using the steps in the Applying Authentication (LDAP or Web Service) to Specific User Types section.

  10. Click Save.
