Configuring Rich Media Edition server access with a credential vault slotAdded by IBM | Edited by IBM on January 16, 2014 | Version 4 (Show original)
|To enable the Rich Media Edition server applications in the portal to communicate with the Rich Media Edition server server without prompting for a login, store user credentials in a credential vault slot.
You can use a credential vault slot to give an unauthenticated portal user access to the Rich Media Edition server server.
Access for authenticated users is dependent on how you set up your Rich Media Edition server server. For more information about configuring access for users and groups, with or without an LDAP server, see Installing and configuring Rich Media Edition server
