When the Active Directory LDAP Server is configured, Valsight tries to authenticate users against the Active Directory LDAP Server. On the first successful authentication, a Valsight user is created. You can then manage rights to specific models and workspaces within the Valsight App.


The Valsight internal user directory is still enabled. Make sure that you change the default admin password.
