This is the default authentication method. The username, unless you specify otherwise, is the text prior to the @ symbol in the users’ email addresses. With Local Authentication, users must use a username and password combination set unique within Faculty Success. Users in local authentication can reset their Faculty Success password.
This is the least preferred method for users. It is less secure because it forces them to remember another password. It is less convenient than Shibboleth, Portal, or LDAP Authentication.
Local Authentication in Faculty Success requires that users use the Faculty Success login page.
Because Local Authentication is the default for Faculty Success, no other actions are necessary from you other than creating user accounts. See Sharing Login Information with Faculty for options to have users set their initial password.
