Authenticating Presentation Users

The Presentation Authentication feature in Presentation Manager allows you to specify the level of security that is required for end users to access presentations from the myAccess Links page. The Assign Users feature lets you specify who is allowed to access specific presentations, and the Authentication feature lets you specify how those users prove to MCS that they are, in fact, the users who have been assigned to the presentation they are requesting.

Note There is a very similar feature in the MCS Security feature, which allows you to specify the level of security that is required to access the MCS console, or publish and access presentations stored on MCS.
To set the user authentication type for presentation access
  1. In the MCS left pane, point to Products and then click Presentation Manager.

    The Presentation Manager tree appears.

  2. In the Presentation Manager tree, click Presentation Authentication.

    The Authentication page appears in the MCS right pane.

  3. From the Authentication Type list box, select the desired level authentication for accessing assigned presentations.

    Note If the Authentication Type is set to None, all users will be able to access all presentations, no matter which users or groups are assigned to the presentations.
  4. (Optional) If necessary, change the settings for the remaining options.

    For details on any of the options on this property page, click Help in the upper-right corner of the window.

  5. Click Save to activate your settings.
