3.3. Creating your first realm¶
When the administrator logs in and no useridresolver and no realm is defined, a popup appears, which asks you to create a default realm. During these first steps you may say “No”, to get a better understanding.
Users in privacyIDEA are read from existing sources. See Realms for more information.
In these first steps we will simply read the users from your /etc/passwd file.
3.3.1. Create a UserIdResolver¶
The UserIdResolver is the connector to the user source. For more information see UserIdResolvers.
Go to Config -> Users to create a UserIdResolver.
Choose New passwdresolver and
Enter the name “myusers”.
You just created your first connection to a user source.
3.3.2. Create a Realm¶
User sources are grouped together to a so called “realm”. For more information see Realms.
Go to Config -> Realms
Enter “realm1” as the new realm name and select the priority 1.
Check the resolver “myusers” to be included into this realm.
Go to Users and you will see the users from the /etc/passwd.
Congratulation! You created your first realm.
You are now ready to enroll a token to a user. Read Enrolling your first token.
