The available configuration tabs are:

BMC Environment

This tab allows you to configure the TrueSight Capacity Optimization license and its integration with other BMC products.

Authentication

This tab allows you to configure the local or external (Atrium Single-Sign-On or LDAP) authentication for users according to the requirement.

Local authentication only

You can use this option to allow only local users to access BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization.

Atrium Single-Sign-On (SSO)

If Atrium SSO server is configured with BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization, you can use Atrium SSO for authentication on BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization.

LDAP

You can use this option to configure multiple LDAP or secure LDAP domains, to authenticate users using different contexts on the same LDAP server or on different servers.

Additional information

If you are using LDAP authentication, users should use <domain>\<username> to login to TrueSight Capacity Optimization. If you have configured default domain, users accessing the default can login without using the domain name.
