About authentication realms


A realm is a way of associating a group of users to the protocol used to verify their credentials.

Authentication Realm

You can associate a database with an authentication protocol using an authentication realm. You can use an authentication realm to encrypt usernames, passwords and other related information. When you configure an authentication realm, associate a database with the realm and try to log in, CollabNet refers to this database to verify your credentials. The properties for every authentication realm are different. Every authentication realm has a unique name.
