The Metasys system has three types of users: local users, Active Directory service users, and RADIUS users. A local user is defined in the Security Administrator system and is authenticated and authorized against the Metasys Security database. An Active Directory service user is created and stored in an Active Directory service domain and is added as a Metasys system user with the Security Administrator System. This user is authenticated against an Active Directory service domain and authorized against the Metasys system. A RADIUS user is created and stored in the RADIUS server and is added as a Metasys system user with the Metasys Security Administrator tool. This user is authenticated against the RADIUS server.

Once logged in, the user is limited to actions that are permitted by the user’s assigned privileges. Refer to the Security Administrator System Technical Bulletin (LIT-1201528) for specific details on Metasys system access security.
