User Store

The user store or the identity store is a repository of user accounts and credentials. ArcGIS Server connects to the user store to authenticate a user requesting access to a resource.

In addition to connecting to your enterprise user store such asWindows Domain or any other directory service that supports an LDAP interface, ArcGIS Server also ships with a built-in storage mechanism where you can create your user accounts.

ArcGIS Server requires you to configure a user store while setting up security on your site.
