AuthAnvil supports three different user types. Listed below are the user types, description and a usage scenario.
Description: Usually a single person with an AuthAnvil token. It is recommended that the username matches what is in Active Directory for logon.
Usage Scenario: John's office uses the AuthAnvil Windows Logon Agent for protecting their computer logins. When he logs on, John enters his username of John, his network password, and, in the third field, his PIN and the OTP from his token.
Description: A user that has standard users, who are called members, assigned to it. A grouped user allows multiple users to log on using a shared username.
Usage Scenario: John's office protects a server with the Windows Logon Agent. The local security policy says that only domain administrators and the user TechAdmin are allowed to log into the servers. TechAdmin is a Grouped User of which John and the other technician are members. When they log on, they enter the username TechAdmin and the network password, followed by the PIN and OTP from their individual token.
Description: A user that is a standard or grouped user on another site, or an entirely different AuthAnvil server. Authentication requests are proxied (sent) to that SAS URL instead.
Usage Scenario: When John is at a client's office, he uses his normal token. That office's AuthAnvil server has John as a proxied user, so his authentication request is sent over to his office instead of to the local AuthAnvil server.
