How to Configure User Databases

  • Last updated on

A user database specifies where user authentication information is stored. The Barracuda SSL VPN 380 and above support multiple user databases, letting you define different access policies for resources that are shared by users. The Barracuda SSL VPN supports authentication with the following services:

Create the user database

To create the user database:

  1. Log into the Administrative Interfaces.
  2. Go to the Manage System > ACCESS CONTROL > User Databases page.
  3. Enter a Name for the database.
  4. In the Create User Database section, select and configure the authentication service.
  5. Click Add

The user database is now listed in the User Database section.

For more detailed information on how to create a built-in user database, see Example - Create a Built-In User Database. For information on how to create a user database with an external authentication service, see Example - Create a User Database with Active Directory.

Delete the user database

To delete a user database, go the Manage System > ACCESS CONTROL > User Databases page and click Delete next to the user database that you want to remove.

Modify the user database

To modify a user database, go the Manage System > ACCESS CONTROL > User Databases page and click Edit next to the user database that you want to modify. You can now edit all settings for the user database. You can change authentication services for a user database; for example, you can switch to using Active Directory after using the built-in user database.
