We do a lot with RFID badges, it would be great if we could scan our badge instead of typing our credentials to log into an app. We are moving to AD so it would need to work with this
This feature is being added in 8.0.5. Please see this post for additional information: https://forum.inductiveautomation.com/t/badge-based-authentication-support/28144/2
I recently created a window that allows users to login to Ignition apps by scanning their company badge into a USB RFID reader (works like a keyboard). I am doing this under a database authentication profile. I don't see being able to do this with AD since you can't access the AD password but that works for us since each AD account consumes a windows licence and we have many users (all of which have RFID badges) that are not in our AD. I also wrote as small script to check that the login was coming from the badge scanner (checking things like total time and time between keystrokes).
