    • Those credentials are collected, then stored as the default system session variables of session.logon.last.username and session.logon.last.password.

  6. If the AD query fails, the user is denied access via the Deny Terminal
  7. If AD Authentication is unsuccessful, the user proceeds down the fallback branch to the Deny Terminal
