Switching from Windows auth to Outsytems internal auth
Application Type
Reactive, Service

We have been using Windows AD authentication in our on premise environment, but would like to switch to Outsystems internal. Does anyone have successful experience with this? Will we need to recreate all the users? Anything gotchas to look out for?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Joseph,

Are you looking to change your backend users (e.g. logins to LifeTime, Service Studio, etc.), or your frontend users (e.g. the /Users app)?

Frontend. And for the record, I changed it on our Dev environment last night, and it messed up the front end users. I can create new ones that work, but cannot make the existing ones, which were automagically added through Windows integrated authentication, work.
