Configure realm authentication properties
In AM, users always authenticate to a realm. Every AM realm has a set of authentication properties that applies to all authentication performed to that realm. The settings are referred to as core authentication attributes.
To configure core authentication attributes for an entire AM deployment, go to Configure > Authentication in the AM admin UI, and click Core Attributes.
To override the global core authentication configuration in a realm, go to Realms > Realm Name > Authentication > Settings in the AM admin UI. Note that when you configure core authentication attributes in a realm, the Global tab does not appear.
Use core authentication attributes to configure:
The list of available authentication modules
Which types of clients can authenticate with which modules
Connection pools for access to directory servers
Whether to retain objects used during authentication so they can be used at logout
Defaults for configuring authentication in a particular realm
For detailed information about the core configuration attributes, see Core authentication attributes.
