Logon Settings:

As the name suggests,the 'logon settings' feature of the Log360 assists you in configuring the logon page of this application.

By default,the Log360 application provides you with two different modes of logging into this application:



  Single Sign-On :

Enable the end-users to login into this Log360 application using their respective domain credentials instead of configuring a new set of login credentials.

Strengthening Single Sign-On using NTLMv2:


As we saw before, Single Sign-On (SSO) enables end-users to log into Log360 application using their respective domain credentials. To make the Single Sign-On process more secure, Log360 supports NTLMv2, a security protocol that provides authentication, integrity, and confidentiality to users.

Here’s how you enable NTLMv2:

  1. Enable the Single Sign-on with Active Directory checkbox. ( Admin --> Product Settings --> Logon Settings ). You will see a list of domains that have been configured with Log360.

  2. Click the Configure Now link of a domain for which you want to enable NTLMv2 authentication.

  3. Enable Single Sign-On

  4. To use the NTLM security provider as an authentication service, a computer account has to be created in Active Directory with a specific password which meets the password policy in Active directory. This computer account should not be associated with any physical computer in your network.

  5. If you already have such a computer account, enter its name and password in the fields provided.

  6. If you do not have an existing computer, enter a computer name and password of your choice, and select the option Create this computer account in the domain.

  7. Click Save to finish.

  8. SS0-POPUP

  9. In case you’ve installed Log360 in a machine that does not belong to the domain you have chosen, click Advanced and specify the DNS Server and DNS Site of the domain you have chosen before saving the settings.

  10. Advanced Settings

    To identify the DNS Server IP address:
