Example One: %Service_Console (cont.)

In the second part of the example we set the authentication mechanism for %Service_Console (the service that controls the Terminal) to Instance Authentication. Then we access the Terminal.

Here are the steps:

  1. Click %Service_Console on the Services page (click [Home] > [System Administration] > [Security] > [Services]) of the Management Portal.

  2. On the Edit Definition page for %Service_Console click Password and make sure that no other mechanism is selected.

    Password setting highlighted with a red box. This setting is located in the Allowed Authenticated Methods section

  3. Click Save.

  4. Now launch the Terminal. Click the InterSystems Launcher in your System Tray. Click Terminal from the menu.

  5. Terminal prompts you for a user name and password. Enter _SYSTEM and SYS respectively:

    Username: _SYSTEM
    Password: ***
    Copy code to clipboard
  6. Execute the Write $UserName command at the prompt:

    USER>Write $UserName
    Copy code to clipboard

    You are accessing InterSystems IRIS through the _SYSTEM account.

  7. Close the Terminal. Click File—>Exit.
