Login Manager PAM Capable

Line: 7 to 7
 

Overview:

Changed:
<
<
The Appx Login Manager can now use PAM to validate user ids/passwords.
>
>
The Appx Login Manager can now use PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules) to validate user ids/passwords. PAM is supported primarly on Linux based systems, but may also work for other Operating Systems if they support PAM.
 
Changed:
<
<
No action is required to activate this ability, it is built in to the 5.3 engine and client.
>
>
To configure the Appx Login Manager to use PAM, you must set the following parameters in the service .ini file:

AuthenticationMethod = PAM

PAMService = appxpam # name of service in /etc/pam.d

 
Changed:
<
<
To interrupt a running job, press Control+END simultaneously. On Mac keyboards without an END key, you can use FN+RIGHT_ARROW for the END key, the complete sequence would be FN+CTRL+RIGHT_ARROW.
>
>
PAMService points to a PAM Policy file (in the /etc/pam.d directory on Linux systems). This can be an existing policy file, or you can create a new one for Appx logins. This is case sensitive if the O/S file names are case sensitive. See the attached AppxPam.ini and appxpam for examples.
 
Changed:
<
<
The designer can control which processes can be interrupted via the 'User Cancel Ok' flag in Additional Attributes at the process level. The designer can also control the behaviour of the parent process when a child process is cancelled via the 'Cancel Disposition' under Additional Attributes for Optional and Automatic children.
>
>
You should be able to use most authentication plugins supported by PAM.
 
Changed:
<
<
When interrupting a running job, the End of Process event point is executed for all processes and control is returned to the user.

In Application Design, the designer can use this keystroke to interrupt an input process and enter the debugger, even if a TRAP has not been previously set. To enable this capabilty while running outside of Application Design (ie, as a normal user), set the environment variable to APPX_DB_TRAPS to a non blank value.

Consult your O/S documentation on configuring PAM for your O/S.
