SAS Visual Analytics login page

I'm using Windows authentication and currently my users must login by entering their userid in the form <domain name\userid>.

But users are at times forgetting to enter the domain name. Is there a way to default to a given domain name so users can just login using only their userid?

I think it should work if you add the <domain name>\<userid> when adding a uder in SAS Management Console. Let me know if this does not work

Here's how I've set it up:

In the 'Accounts' tab of create new user, I definitely have it in the form domain name\userid.

In the General tab, I have the users  full name in the Name field.

But the users still have to enter the domain name when logging into VA. Still not working....

Please check out the ldap settings

SAS(R) 9.4 Intelligence Platform: Security Administration Guide, Second Edition

maybe there is the problem, your setup does not refer to the ldap servers.

My understanding is we're not using LDAP as this is a Windows Server 2008 R2 installation authenticating against AD.  Or does LDAP always come into play?

It depends on your server and application configuration.

But being a Windows box, my guess is that SAS authenticates to Active Directory.

Re: SAS Visual Analytics login page

At our site, the LDAP settings and security layers mean that I have to add user accounts in metadata as:

blah123@domain.yyy.zzz

However, SAS VA authenticates directly to LDAP Enterprise Directory using their main user ID, i.e. blah123. So they don't need to add @domain.yyy.zzz when logging on to VA.

The LDAP authentication system options are in our SAS config file. They handle the domain suffix. (In the metadata server log, user logins appear as blah123@domain.yyy.zzz)

Possibly Windows Active Directory SAS system options exist that pass the domain\user ID to the SAS metadata server for the identity account look-up?
