Enabling or Disabling a Security Service

The Composer supervisor can enable or disable a security authentication service.

Enabling a Security Service

To enable a security authentication service:

  1. Log in as the Composer supervisor.

  2. Select to access the supervisor menu and then select Security.

    The Security page appears. It consists of four tabs: Security Services, SAML Settings, LDAP Settings, and Kerberos Settings.

  3. On the Security Services tab, use the appropriate toggle to switch ON the authentication service you want to enable.

  4. Select .

    After the settings have been saved, the status of the authentication service changes to Will start on next restart.

  5. Close the Composer UI.

  6. Access the Linux prompt and log into your Composer server (via Secure Shell or SSH).

  7. Restart the Composer server service. See Restart Composer Microservices.

    Wait a few minutes for the Composer service to fully restart, then open a new browser window and log back in as the supervisor. Verify that your changes took effect. After restarting Composer, the authentication service status changes to Started.

    If you receive an error message stating that the connection to Composer could not be made, you may need to give it a little more time for the service to fully restart. If the problem persists, contact Composer Technical Support.
