RapidIdentity Product Guides - 2019 Rolling Release

Authentication Policy Choices

The Enable Authentication Policy Choices checkbox enables administrators to allow users to select what authentication method(s) to use to authenticate to RapidIdentity. When this box is checked, RapidFederation "collects" all matching policies associated with the user. Users matching more than one policy are presented with a drop-down box to select an authentication method after entering their username.

In order for users to select an authentication method (e.g. PingMe or Password with Challenge Questions), at least two authentication Policies must exist and the user attempting to authenticate must match both policies. If a user only matches one policy, authentication proceeds in accord with how that policy is configured.
