RDPlus Web Credentials is a state-of-the-art unique feature, which allows users to connect with just an e-mail address or a pin-code.
With Web Credentials, you can secure your server’s access with the e-mail address of a user, or with a simple pin-code generated by your business application. One of the great benefits of this feature is that these credentials (e-mail or pin-code) are pure web credentials – the user will not know the Windows user account they are currently using, and do not need to know a real Windows login/password to connect to their application!
With Web Credentials, you will be able to define custom pure web credentials and match them to any existing Windows/Active Directory user account. The user will then be able to connect using these custom credentials, instead of the Windows/Active Directory ones.
In the Admin Tool, open the “Web” tab and click on the “Web Credentials” tile.
The Web Credentials Manager will open and display this window:
You can now create a new Web Credential by matching a custom login and (optional) password with an existing Windows/Active Directory user account, as show below:
You can also edit and remove an existing Web Credential, thus changing or disabling any custom credentials you configured.
If your web credentials contains any of the following character @ + ? : ; = | < > [ ] and a not-empty password, then any standard Web Access Page will work fine when typing a Web Credential.
Otherwise, you have to use the Webmaster Toolkit in order to create a Web Credentials enabled page, using the “Web Credentials” section of the “Preferences” tab, as show below:
