Authentication credentials

When you specify a command, use the following parameters to specify the login information for the BlackBerry Administration Service administrator account that you want to use to perform the task:
  • -bas_auth or -ad_auth
  • -username <user_name>
  • -password <password>
  • -domain <domain> (only if -ad_auth is used)

Throughout this document, the variable <credentials> represents the login information that you specify for the administrator account.

If you specify -username <user_name> and -password <password> without specifying -bas_auth or -ad_auth, the tool assumes that the administrator account uses BlackBerry Administration Service authentication (-bas_auth). The examples throughout this document use BlackBerry Administration Service authentication, and include -username and -password only.

If you do not specify any login information, the tool tries to log in to the BlackBerry Administration Service using your current Windows authentication credentials. This behaviour assumes that you configured the BlackBerry Administration Service for single sign-on authentication using Microsoft Active Directory authentication. You can also specify -sso_auth instead of -username, -password, and -domain if you want the tool to log in to the BlackBerry Administration Service using your current Windows authentication credentials.
