Configuring anonymous authentication

Anonymous authentication allows anyone to access public information that is available for viewing on the Spotfire web client without prompting them for a user name or password.


  1. Open a command line and export the active server configuration by using the export-config command; for additional information, see Executing commands on the command line.
  2. On the command line, enter the following command:
    config config-anonymous-auth --enabled=true
    For details on the command, see config-anonymous-auth.
  3. Enter the following command to enable the guest account:
    config enable-user --username=ANONYMOUS\guest
    For details on the command, see enable-user.
  4. Import the configuration back to the Spotfire database by using the import-config command.
  5. Restart the Spotfire Server.
