authentication type

When editing Credential Mapper Servlet (CMS)-related parameters in the web.xml file for macro-based automation, the parameter value must contain the full class path name of the implementing class, the authentication type to be addressed by the credential mapper, and the host mask.

Once you specify the desired authentication type, the CMS can better identify which credential mapper to select to handle the request. You can pair multiple authentication types together to give Host Credential Mappers (HCM) the freedom to support multiple authentication types.
