    Is the following possible?

    I would like to get a user’s credentials checked against two authentication modules.
    If one of them succeeds, the user would be let through.

    1. Credentials entered on login page.
    2. Check against authentication module 1, if passed all is well or try next.
    3. Check against authentication module 2, if passed all is well or exit.

    Thank you in advance,

    Yes, that is possible. You would set the criteria of module 1 to SUFFICIENT and module 2 to REQUIRED. If module 1 succeeds then it will skip module 2 and succeed the whole chain. If module 1 fails it will move on to module 2. The chain success is then dependent on whether module 2 succeeds or fails at that point.


    Thanks Scott for the answer and explanation.
