Configure an Authenticator
On this page
The most common login method is username and password. The Curity Identity Server provides an authenticator called
html-form that is suitable for setting up a login with username and password. It uses a Credential Manager to verify the credentials, which in turn uses a data source. It can also be configured with an Account Manager to allow for user self-signup.
This tutorial makes use of the Credential Manager and Account Manager that were created as part of the First Configuration Tutorial.
Select Authentication -> Authenticators from the sidebar menu to go to the Authenticators page.
Add a new Authenticator
Click New Authenticator on the authenticator page, and type the name
username-password. Select the
HTML-Form Authenticator type in the grid of authenticators and click next.
Configure Credential Manager and Account Manager
The HTML Form authenticator needs a Credential Manager in order to verify credentials and optionally an Account Manager for user registration. Select the
default-account-manager as account manager and
default-credential-manager as credential manager.
Commit the Changes
Commit the changes via the Changes menu.
Optionally add a commit message.
Now your first authenticator is configured. The next step is to configure an OAuth client.
