Configure EULA as an authentication factor in Citrix ADC nFactor system

The following figure displays an end-user logon flow with EULA. In this flow, existing first factor is moved to after the EULA. EULA becomes a first/vserver profile with previous first factor becoming a second factor.

Configuration by using the CLI

  1. Copy eula.xml to /nsconfig/loginschema on your Citrix ADC.
  2. Add a login schema for EULA.

    add authentication loginSchema eulaschema -authenticationSchema eula.xml
    add authentication loginSchemaPolicy eula_schema -rule true -action eulaschema
    bind authentication vserver auth -policy eula_schema -priority 5
  3. Add authentication factor as a secondary factor.

    add authentication loginSchema single_auth -authenticationSchema "LoginSchema/SingleAuth.xml"
    add authentication policylabel single_factor -loginSchema single_auth
    bind authentication policylabel single_factor -policyName ldap-adv -priority 5
  4. Add no-auth policy at the virtual server cascade.

    add authentication Policy noauth_pol -rule "http.req.url.contains(\"/nf/auth/\")" -action NO_AUTHN
    bind authentication vserver auth -policy noauth_pol -priority 1 -nextFactor single_factor -gotoPriorityExpression NEXT
