The Access Manager Credential Provider provides Desktop Integration for the Windows 10, Windows 8.1/8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista Logon Screen.
Setup Access Manager
Before you install the Credential Provider module on your desktop clients you must first configure the API Allowed Networks list under the Remote Access tab. The image below shows an example 'allow all' configuration but it is highly recommended that you limit access to internal network IP addresses only.
Microsoft Installer packages are available and provide standard options for unattended installs. No reboot is required before the logon dialogue will show the account action options.
Version 1.8 **Last updated 25th February 2016**
Running the installer on your machine will install the application but not prompt for a server address, you'll need to edit this through the registry, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Nervepoint Technologies/Access Manager and set the address in the Server entity.
You may want to consider customising the Desktop authentication flow under the Authentication tab. The default configuration is to ask the user to answer a random number of their reset questions; however Access Manager does support additional modules for PIN, Passphrase and One Time Password.
