Configuring Local authentication
You can configure Remedy Single Sign-On server for local authentication.
Local authentication is a simple light-weight user store which should not be used as a corporate-wide authentication provider. It is not designed as a high performance authentication provider to support group policies, password expiration, and so on. It allows creating realm specific user stores which can be used for different purposes.
You might need to configure Local authentication in one of the following use cases:
- For applications that require several user accounts
- For cases when corporate identity providers are not available
- For testing purposes
You should consider other authentication types when you design corporate-wide authentication for a high workload.
Before you begin
Add and configure a realm as it is described in Adding and configuring realms.

Best PracticeSince Local authentication is a simple light-weight user store, BMC recommends adding another authentication type to handle high workloads.
