Authentication and Authorization Management

Use the MediaSpace Configuration Management panel Auth module of the Kaltura MediaSpace Administration Area to configure the authentication and authorization methods for accessing MediaSpace content. Access is based on the Application role configured for the user.

The following scenarios are supported:

  1. Authentication and Authorization Are Managed in Organizational Systems
  2. Authentication and Authorization Are Managed in Kaltura 
  3. Authentication Is Managed in an Organizational System, Authorization Is Managed in Kaltura 
  4. Authentication and Authorization Are Managed in Multiple Locations

Usually, both authentication and role authorization are set through integration with the organizational identity and group management systems (Scenario 1). Kaltura’s authentication and/or authorization options may be useful in the cases described in Scenarios 2 and 3.

User authorization to channel and content entitlements is handled separately.
