Defining access control credentials

Use the Credentials section to define the type of credential to use to control access to a remote rendering portlet.

  1. To use the current user's credentials to determine access rights to the rendering portlet, select Use LTPA. This method is the recommended access control for remote rendering portlets. When using LTPA you need to enable single signon.
  2. Select Credential Vault Slot to use a specific credential vault to determine access rights for all users. You must then enter a credential vault slot name. Using a credential vault means that the user accessing the remote rendering portlet is logged in to the remote system as the credential vault user. It is possible that they can access the remote server directly and act as the credential vault user. You should ensure that the credential vault user is configured to have the minimum access required to access the remote rendering portlet.
