Disabling or opting Authentication Types in PAM Client


Article ID: 201086


Updated On:


CA Privileged Access Manager (PAM) CA Privileged Access Manager - Cloakware Password Authority (PA) CA Privileged Access Manager - Server Control (PAMSC)


Can we make changes to the PAM client on desktop with only one  "Authentication Type" option all the time ... 

Currently it shows  4 options  for users LDAP, RADIUS, Self, LDAP + RADIUS (We made it only LDAP+RADIUS as default for users),  however can we modify and display only one authentication option  to avoid confusion.

We also Is there an option to limit or disable few of the Authentication Types on the PAM Client or browser login screen for PAM?

Any OOB option or via APi or CLI method of doing it???


Release : 3.4



There is also one similar idea already published in our communities in this link:


Unfortunately the solution cannot be altered if we show user only Local & LDAP under Authentication Type and suppress other methods in the drop down on login screen..
