Wyn Enterprise: Security Providers

Wyn Enterprise provides a unique security provider mechanism that allows a user to log into Wyn Enterprise, using user names and passwords already available in other business systems. This security provider mechanism perfectly solves the problem that users need to maintain multiple sets of user names and passwords.

The current security provider used by default is a Built-In Account Provider, and the user login authentication is based on the user information in Wyn Enterprise. Another built-in security provider is Windows Active Directory, which allows users to log in to the Wyn Enterprise system using Windows Active Directory accounts.

To add a security provider, follow these steps.

Add a Security Provider

  1. Copy the compiled security provider DLL file to the SecurityProviders folder in the Wyn installation directory. The default path for Windows is C:\Program Files\Wyn Enterprise\Server\SecurityProviders. For Linux, the default path is .../opt/Wyn/Server/SecurityProviders.

    The path for 'SecurityProviders' is based on the location of the identity server.

    • If the identity server provider is "Server", the location will be "C:\Program Files\Wyn Enterprise\Server\SecurityProviders"
    • If the identity server provider is "Portal", the location will be "C:\Program Files\Wyn Enterprise\Portal\SecurityProviders" .

    Adding a security provider on Admin portal

    Note: If the security provider depends on other DLLs, please copy them to the same directory.

  2. Navigate to Configuration > Security Providers and click Add Provider.

  3. In order for the security provider settings to take effect, restart the Wyn Enterprise service.

  4. Select the security provider you want to add.

  5. Select the security provider and enter the settings on the right of the page.
