You can use the Advanced Operations menu to make additional changes that might be required in atypical environments.

Import an authentication plugin configuration file

The Tanium Appliance includes a local authentication service that can be used for Tanium Console user authentication. You can create and delete users and manage their passwords.

In addition, you can configure Tanium Console authentication against your enterprise LDAP server. For details on using LDAP, see the Tanium Core Platform User Guide.

The Tanium Appliance also supports a pluggable authentication module for many commonly used authentication methods. For details, contact your TAM.
