TRIM Context is a multi-tier client Server system which utilizes the Microsoft Distributed Component model (DCOM), where the application may be shared between client computers and multiple servers.
System administrators require server access to manage low-level system functions in TRIM. (These could include adding a database or repository or linking to other (external) databases). These system administrators require both login credentials to the server(s) on which TRIM resides and to the TRIM Server software.
Authentication in Trim Context Desktop
TRIM users and administrators using the desktop client access the system through the TRIM Client software on their desktop. Users are authenticated at Windows login, using DCOM to authenticate the user name. TRIM determines the user level of access (including none) from their Windows username. TRIM administrators can add users and change TRIM application settings from the TRIM Client. There can only be one login/permission setting per unique domain\username combination. Users can come from multiple domains, however DCOM requires that these domains have full two-way trust.
Authentication in ice
TRIM ice users connect to the system through a user name and login. This login is authenticated against this usersâ domain name username and password. ice uses the SDK to authenticate to TRIM.
