Integrated Windows Authentication

Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) is a built-in Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) authentication protocol that can be used to automatically authenticate and sign-in a user to EMS Web App. IWA is best used on intranets where all clients accessing EMS Web App are within a single domain. 

Integrated Windows Authentication is supported for EMS Floor Plan (V44.1 Update 11).

For more information:

When a domain user who is logged on to a networked PC accesses an EMS Everyday User application, such as EMS Web App, EMS Mobile App, or EMS for Outlook, their Active Directory credentials (Domain\User ID) are compared against corresponding Domain\User ID information recorded in the Network ID and\or External Reference fields of your EMS Everyday User records. If a match exists, the Everyday User gets automatically logged in.

The Field Used to Authenticate Web User parameter (within System Administration > Settings Parameters > Everyday User Applications tab is used to determine which value should be used for authentication.
