Vivi provides its own internal authentication source, and also supports a number of different authentication types:

Please note:

  • This is a complicated section of the overall setup. It is strongly recommended that it is handled by someone who has a solid understanding of the authentication service that is to be used.
  • Enabling a different authentication type will disable Vivi standard authentication.
  • If a group is provided for "IT Administrators" from a separate authentication source, all existing IT Administrator accounts will lose admin access, since the Vivi standard authentication IT Admin role settings will no longer be relevant.

The authentication type can be set in the Organisation settings. To view or edit the current setting:

  • Select the "Organisation" link in Vivi Central.
  • Select the "Authentication" link in the menu at the top of the screen.
