Server setup - Authentication

SapphireDb allows to control permissions for specific operations with different mechanisms.


You have to configure your application to use identity or some other way of authentication. SapphireDb relies on the auth-mechanisms if Identity. After you have configured Identity you have to do a small adjustment to make SapphireDb work with that.
