  • You can transport the user definitions between models as Reference Data, using the Project | Model Import/Export | Export Reference Data and Import Reference Data options
  • If you select the Accept Windows Authentication checkbox, when a user opens the model Enterprise Architect checks the user's database for their Windows ID and, if it matches, automatically logs the user in without prompting for a password
  • The Accept Windows Authentication checkbox enables the Import button, which you can select to import user IDs from a Windows Active Directory
  • As a security measure, the Accept Windows Authentication checkbox is automatically deselected if the project .eap file is moved to a different location; once the file has been relocated, you can select the checkbox again to apply Windows authentication from the new database
