Setting Historian Login Security

About this task

Use Historian Login Security settings if you want to validate users at the Data Archiver, instead of at the client. By applying these settings, users and applications are forced to provide a user name and password at connect time so that the archiver can validate them. For example, users in the security group such as ih Security Admins will be checked by the Archiver.

For Historian Login Security settings, you can view and set the property from the HistorianSDKsample server properties. The current setting is shown in the data archiver SHW file.

Historian Login Security property is available only in Historian SDK.

To set login security using the Historian SDK:


  1. Run the SDK sample.
  2. Connect to a server.
  3. Select the server in the list box.
    The Server Properties dialog box appears.
  4. On the right side of the dialog box, locate the AllowClientValidation setting. By default, this value is set to TRUE. Click to set to FALSE, and click OK.
