Login Providers section

To determine who can login in to administrate the server you need use a login provider. At the Server layer that are two options available for this, the first is the StaticLoginProvider and the second is the LdapLoginProvider

StaticLoginProvider is the simplest of the login providers, and the most useful for admin/developer login, or in the early development phase of your project. It works by simply letting you specify a list of valid usernames and passwords that will be accepted. This is the default login provider for all logins on a freshly installed Relativity Server or a freshly created domain.

LdapLoginProvider is the most complex one of the available login provider options. It can be used to connect Relativity to an existing LDAP server in your organization to validate logins. This can be very useful if you want your application to automatically share usernames and passwords with other non-Relativity, non-Data Abstract services in your company. Getting into the details of LDAP would go beyond the scope of this text, but if your organization is using LDAP, your LDAP administrator should be familiar with the required options.

By default the StaticLoginProvider is used, and comes pre-populated with the user Administrator with the password Relativity. We recommend that you change this on instances of Relativity that are exposed to the Internet.
