Cisco Unified MeetingPlace System Authentication

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

  • 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”.

  • LDAP

  • Windows Integrated Authentication

Note For details, see Configuring User Authentication for Web Server.
