8.5 Local Repository

IMPORTANT:The Local Repository is not available in Advanced Authentication as a Service (SaaS) version

The Local repository contains the Advanced Authentication server data. You can manage users and set roles for users in the local repository.

To edit a local repository, perform the following steps:

  1. Click Edit in the LOCAL section of Repositories.

  2. In the Global Roles tab, you can manage the Helpdesk administrators as ENROLL ADMINS, Advanced Authentication administrators as FULL ADMINS, and an additional privilege to share the authenticators to the Helpdesk administrators as SHAREAUTH ADMINS.

    By default, there are no ENROLL ADMINS and the account LOCAL\ADMIN is specified as FULL ADMIN. You can change this by adding the user names from local or the repositories in Members.

    NOTE:By default the helpdesk administrator cannot share the authenticators. Only when the helpdesk administrator is added in Members in the SHAREAUTH ADMINS, the helpdesk administrator will be able to share the authenticators. However, the Enable sharing of authenticators in Authenticator Management Options policy must be enabled to share authenticators.

  3. Click Save.

  4. In the Users tab, you can manage the local users.

    To add the new local account, click Add and specify the required information of the user.

  5. In the Settings tab, you can edit the name of the Local repository.
