Manage Feedback Portal Authentication

Feedback Portal supports two types of authentication methods - Windows and Forms authentication. You can choose one of them or use both.


How to change authentication settings?

Go to Administration -> select Ideas & Feedback Portal -> Authentication Settings.

Windows Credentials

With windows credentials people use their account from the active directory of the company, organization, etc. When creating users which will use windows credentials the Username and Domain should match the one from the active directory.

Forms Authentication

Forms authentication allows you to use Feedback Portal with users different from windows users. This way you can include people into projects that are not in the company but are related to a project or people that are not with the same domain without having to worry about VPNs, etc.


Saving Changes

After the changes are saved you will be informed:

Changing that option affects only the Feedback Portal. (There is a separate option for the main TeamPulse application, the Administration site and the xView site - see Manage TeamPulse Authentication.)
Changes will take effect a few minutes after the save.


Only users that have Server Administrator Role enabled can access the Administration site and therefore can enable or disable the authentication method - see Managing Server Administrator Role.
