Issue/Introduction

How to count the used licenses from CA Strong Authentication if we have 2 or more Organizations into CA Strong Authentication?

Environment

CA Strong Authentication ( Arcot WebFort)

CA Risk Authentication ( Arcot RiskFort)

Release : 9.x and Onwards

Resolution

CA strong authentication does not have Licensing capability inbuilt in the product. To get the number of licenses the customer need to run the query against the database and find out the required information.

If user base is in database ( Oracle or SQL Server), below query can be run-

select count(*) USERID from ARUDSUSER;


The above query reports on all users in the primary user table. To determine the number of users per organization container (ARUDSORGANIZATION ) as defined in AuthMinder amend the query to:

select count(*) USERID from ARUDSUSER where ORGNAME = ‘YourOrgNameHere’;

If the customer is using the LDAP org, retrieve the count of active uses based on the attribute mapping for User Status in AA.

Here is the brief information about the approach to get the active user count.

  1. Get the information about the user status mapping attribute with LDAP. (eg : STATUS (Arcot-attribute) vs Attribute in LDAP e.g. : STATUS <--> AccountStatus
  2. Note that the STATUS=1 is considered to be an active user for AA transactions.
  3. Connect to LDAP and get the list of users for whose AccountStatus=1 (Active) for the BaseDN configured for the LDAP Organization in AA.
  4. The count of the user account status=1 is the Active User Count from LDAP.
