Authenticating Users

Zoomdata supports several approaches to authenticating users. Your organization must choose the best approach given your existing constraints and objectives.

Zoomdata's login provides basic access to the Zoomdata application. Users can be grouped and given access to different roles and permissions in one or more accounts on the Zoomdata server. In the Zoomdata application, an account is a group of users with shared access to sources of data.

X.509 client certificate authentication can be used for client certificate authentication. However, note that auto-provisioning of user accounts is not available. See Configuring Client Certificate Authentication.

SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) provides single sign-on capabilities.

Zoomdata also supports Kerberos for single sign-on.

In addition to single sign-on access, Zoomdata supports LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) so that you can enable directory-based access to Zoomdata.
