Creating an Authentication Profile

Aug 31, 2016

When you want the same authentication settings to be used by multiple traffic management virtual servers, you can create an authentication profile which specifies the authentication virtual server, the authentication host, the authentication domain, and authentication level.

This authentication profile can be associated with the relevant traffic management virtual servers.

To configure an authentication profile by using the NetScaler CLI

  1. Create the authentication profile and set the required parameters.

    For example, to create a profile with an authentication virtual server named "authVS".

    ns-cli-prompt> add authentication authnProfile authProfile1 -authnVsName authVS -authenticationHost authnVS.example.com -authenticationDomain example.com -authenticationLevel 1

  2. Bind the authentication profile to the relevant traffic management virtual servers.

    For example, to bind authProfile1 to a load balancing virtual server named "vserver1".

    ns-cli-prompt> set lb vserver vserver1 -authnProfile authProfile1

To configure an authentication profile by using the NetScaler GUI

In the Configuration tab, navigate to Security > AAA - Application Traffic > Authentication Profile, and configure the authentication profile as required.
