Password (cloud deployment) authentication validates the user name and password against your enterprise directory.

You set up password authentication when you create a directory in the Workspace ONE Access service. You can set it up later from the Integrations > Connector Authentication Methods section in the Workspace ONE Access console.

When you configure Password authentication, you select the directory types that correspond to the Directory Sync services directory types you configured for the directory.
