There are two types of authentication when adding Data Sources for IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation as follows
- Login authentication through the embedded browser
To support the secured environment with different authentications including single sign-on, the embedded browser can be used to allow you to log on directly to the DNG login page so that DataHub is able to make connections to a variety of secured servers.
- OAuth consumer key authentication
Before selecting one of the two authentication types, you must open the Add Data Source dialog first and select the IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation driver.
To open the Add Data Source dialog and select IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation as the driver
- On the DataHub Explorer toolbar, click the Add Data Source
button. The Add Data Source dialog opens.
- From the Driver drop-down list, select IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation.
