Select authentication type

You can allow users to log in to LoadRunner Enterprise using their internal LoadRunner Enterprise passwords, LDAP passwords, or SSO authentication.

Note: All users using the system must be in the LoadRunner Enterprise database before they can be authenticated using one of the authentication types. For details, see Create or edit a user.


The authentication method is defined in LoadRunner Enterprise Administration per tenant, on the basis of one type of authentication per LoadRunner Enterprise farm.

Note: We recommend using SSO or LDAP because they are a more secure type of authentication.
