DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)



There are two different sign in options that can be used for UMP:  screen name or email address.  From the portal-ext.properties you can use either of the following options:

  • company.security.auth.type=screenName
  • company.security.auth.type=emailAddress

***Note:  Changing the setting above from screenName to emailAddress will make it so that you can only log into UMP with an email address.  You will also have to change every user account to use email address instead of the default screenName (i.e. username).


UMP 7.x and later
