- To authenticate users, Reporter uses a local user list or the LDAP protocol. It does not support the IWA authentication methodologies.
- You can configure your ProxySG appliance to use an IWA realm as long the access log it sends to Reporter conforms to these Reporter specifications.
- For a list of the proper access log fields, see 000021974
- For a list of the user ID syntax fields Reporter supports, see 000014866
In this configuration, Blue Coat recommends that you use the same authentication source (Active Directory, e-Directory, or a third party LDAP compatible source) for both Reporter and the ProxySG appliance(s). To ensure consistency, Blue Coat also advises that you to use the same Base DN on both.
