Add Local Users to an Authentication Domain

Before you can select domain users and groups in a cloud-managed Firebox configuration, you must add them to the authentication domain. The user names you add to a domain must match a user configured in your authentication domain database. User names are case-sensitive.

If you change the configured users for an authentication domain, it could affect devices or services that use the authentication domain.

To manage users for an authentication domain, from WatchGuard Cloud:

  1. If you are a Service Provider, select the name of the managed subscriber account.
  2. Select Configure > Authentication Domains.
    The Authentication Domains page opens.
