Challenge Users

Defines the users that Authentication Agent challenges for RSA SecurID credentials. You can challenge all users, all users except those in a specified group, only users in a specified group, or no users. You can specify whether or not to send the domain name and user name to RSA Authentication Manager instead of just the user name.

Note: If you challenge only users in a specified group or all users except those in a specified group, you must enter the name of the group in the Group name field. Enter the group name in the format \, or for the current machine, enter .\. You must enter a valid group name. If the group name is invalid or does not exist, Authentication Agent challenges all users.

Supported on: Supported on Windows 7 or later.
