The IMR is a secured application that requires users to authenticate. Different security rights are granted to users based on security groups and roles. IMR supports 3 different ways to authenticate a user:
- WHO employees may login with their usual WIMS/Synergy account;
- External organisations may register for an ADS account at https://extranet.who.int/ads, then use that account to login within IMR;
- An internal authentication mechanism is also provided, whereby user name and encrypted password is maintained in the IMR database
These correspond to three different options on the login page:
Depending how the system has been setup, different options may be presented depending on the URL being used to access the IMR:
Regardless of the system setup, one can force the display of the IMR application authentication option by adding imrlogin=true on the URL (e.g. login.aspx?imrlogin=true).
Note that in any case, the system administrator must create the corresponding account to setup the permission whithin IMR, before the account can be used to successfully login.
