Up one level: Configuration




Authenticating users against the profile database on the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server is the default user authentication option. You have two options when configuring this type of authentication:

  • Logging in with an HTML-based web page form. This is the default option.
  • Logging in against a login window rendered by your web browser.


Regardless of the login page users see, user IDs and passwords are sent to the Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Application Server for authentication. Both profiles and user passwords must match. Profiles are not case-sensitive.
