Alfresco packages two implementations of a deployment receiver authenticator. The simple authenticator is configured with a single username and password when the server is set up. The alternative implementation (which cannot be used in stand alone mode) passes the username and password to the Alfresco authentication service, allowing any recognized user to successfully authenticate.
The two implementations of DeploymentReceiverAuthenticator are initialized differently. Configuration details for each implementation are provided below.
This implementation pertains to the implementation in org.alfresco.deployment.impl.server.DeploymentReceiverAuthenticatorSimple.
