Enable Multi (Chained) Authentication in the GUI

To enable multi chained auth in your GUI, first browse to the Endpoint Designer and view the “Core Settings” tab.

1. Browse down to the “Target Details” section.

In this section you can chose the various authentication methods, each selection provides a different settings window, in this case, we will want to configure many auth providers, so it works slightly differently.

2. Set the multi-auth setting

Select the “Use Multiple Auth Mechanisms” drop down option, this will open up a window that provides checkboxes for each supported auth type to be chained.

It is not possible to set the order of chained auth methods.


3. Select your preferred auth methods and determine the baseline provider

The baseline provider will be the one that provides the current request context with the session object to use that defines the “true” access control list, rate limit and quota to apply to the user.


Once these have been set up, you will see the traditional configuration screens for each one of the auth methods that were selected in the check boxes. Configure them as you would regular authentication modes.
