In some environments, users are required to perform actions within the IT Analytics (ITA) console using an account that differs from the account with which they've logged-in to Windows. When using certain browsers, the ITA console automatically logs a user in under the credentials of their Windows session when Windows Authentication is selected at the login screen, preventing the user from supplying alternate credentials.
When Integrated Windows Authentication is enabled for browsers, users are not presented with a login prompt and can only login to ITA as the logged-on user of their active Windows session. Integrated Windows Authentication enables a client to pass Windows credentials via a browser's authorization header to a site for authentication. This feature is typically enabled for intranet sites and is controlled via Windows' Internet Options control panel.
The following browsers are controlled by this setting:
Microsoft Internet Explorer
Release : 2.9.x
Component : Console
To login to the ITA console as a user other than the signed-in user of the active Windows session without modifying the settings in the Internet Options control panel or using an alternate browser (e.g., Firefox), follow this procedure:
