Cisco Unified MeetingPlace System Authentication
The Cisco Unified MeetingPlace system authenticates users by one of the following methods, depending on what the isLocalUser user profile setting is for each user:
- Locally against the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace user database (isLocalUser is Yes)
- Externally through AXL authentication (isLocalUser is No)
- Note: For details, see External AXL Authentication for Directory Service Users.
Third-Party Authentication for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing
If you do not want to use system authentication for the end-user web interface, you can use third party authentication software, for example:
- Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Local Authentication (this is the default)
- HTTP Basic Authentication (Domain)
- LDAP (this can provide multiple domain integration)
- LDAP, then MeetingPlace (this provides single domain integration)
- Trust External Authentication
- Windows Integrated Authentication
Note: For details, see Configuring User Authentication for Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Web Conferencing.
Some integrations may use authentication options that are separate from and not controlled by Cisco Unified MeetingPlace. Examples:
- Cisco WebEx Integration Option 2: Schedule and Attend Cisco WebEx Meetings from Cisco WebEx. See About Integration Option 2: Schedule and Attend Cisco WebEx Meetings from Cisco WebEx.
- Microsoft Outlook front-end integration using the Single sign-on authentication method. See How to Enable Scheduling From Microsoft Outlook.
