    Setup: Authentication


    Curator no longer supports new installations on IIS

    For current information on how to set up Active Directory on Windows, please see our Active Directory documentation.

    Only use the information below on existing installs. It is highly recommended that you reinstall with Apache for stability, please see our Windows Apache Installation documentation for steps on how to achieve the best Curator experience for Windows.


    Using IIS, you can use the user's AD credentials automatically.

    Enable Windows Authentication in "Add/Remove Windows Features". (Sometimes this is known as Add Roles and Features) Server Roles -> Web Server (IIS) -> Web Server -> Security -> Window Authentication. Note: This may be found in the Server Manager, not IIS

    Once this is added, go to your site in IIS, click "Authentication". Change "Windows Authentication" to "Enabled" and "Anonymous Authentication" to "Disabled".

    Authentication settings

    Go to the site in the IIS Manager and open the Configuration Editor
