Simul Enterprise can identify (and authenticate) users using one of the following methods:
This method allows users to register and create an account unique to Simul Enterprise. Users will be authenticated using an email address and password.
To use this method, end users will need to verify they are the owner of the registered email address by responding to a verification email.
To configure user registration, open the Simul Enterprise management application installed on your server and select "Identities":
Ensure the "Registration" radio button is checked and add a list of domain names you wish to restrict Simul to.
Restricted domains will apply during registration and when a user attempts to share a document. It is recommended you restrict the list of domains to your organizations email domain(s) to make it clear who can access the platform.
Using Active Directory integration allows user to use the same credentials they use to log-on to their computers.
This enables Simul to skip any verification of email addresses and automatically restricts the sharing of documents to users which exists in Active Directory.
To enable, open the Simul Enterprise management application installed on your server and select "Identities":
Ensure the "Active Directory" radio button is checked and provide the following:
Press "Test and Save". Simul will validate your parameters and inform you of any errors.
Any updates to Simul's configuration are not effective until an administrator applies them. This includes if the system is restarted.
After making changes of any kind, an indicator will appear on the "Status" tab in the navigation of the management application:
This icon indicates there are pending configuration changes which are yet to take effect.
To apply the changes, select "Status" in the management application and you will see a message like so:
By clicking "Apply Settings" Simul will be restarted with the modified configuration. Please be aware this involves a short outage (around 1 minute) for end users.
