radius_auth creates local account, how does this affect auth mechanism priority?

Hello!

Once a RADIUS user authenticates against RADIUS, a user object is created in Splunk to represent that user. Once this occurs how does the radius_auth app continue to authenticate against RADIUS if a user with that name exists in Splunk?

Will it still fall through to RADIUS?

Cheers,
James

Splunk treats users that were authenticated remotely differently than local accounts. Users will still be able to authenticate via RADIUS.

However, a true local account will take precedence over the RADIUS account.

Thanks Luke!

I have another question but will raise it with a separate post to maintain some cohesiveness here.
