Cisco Unified MeetingPlace System Authentication

The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system authenticates users by one of the following methods, depending on what the isLocalUser user profile setting is for each user:

Locally against the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user database (isLocalUser is Yes)

Externally through AXL authentication (isLocalUser is No)


Note For details, see "External AXL Authentication for Directory Service Users" in the Configuring Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Directory Service module.

Third-Party Authentication for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing

If you do not want to use system authentication for the end-user web interface, then you can use third party authentication software, for example:

Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Local Authentication (this is the default)

HTTP Basic Authentication (Domain)

LDAP (this can provide multiple domain integration)

LDAP, then MeetingPlace (this provides single domain integration)

Trust External Authentication

Windows Integrated Authentication


Note For details, see the Configuring User Authentication for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing module.
