About LocalDB Auth

The LocalDB Auth action can authenticate a user against a local user database instance. The LocalDB Auth action can lock a user out of a local user database instance if they fail to log on within a specified number of attempts.
For enhanced security, typically, Local Database actions should be placed before and after a LocalDB Auth action to read and write user information to track non-static users (those not created by an administrator) that attempt repeatedly to logon and fail.
A LocalDB Auth action provides these configuration elements and options.
LocalDB Instance
Specifies a local user database instance.
Max Logon Attempts Allowed
A number from 1 to 5.
For a per-request policy subroutine, equivalent functionality is supported through subroutine settings.
