5.10. Set token realmΒΆ

Each token may be in several realms at the same time.

When a token is assigned to a user, this token also gets put into the realm of the user.

But you can also put the token into several realms, so that realm administrators (see Admin Policies) can see those tokens.

Imagine a scenario where you have a LinOTP installation with several realms. Each realm is managed by a dedicated realm administrator. Now you can import many tokens. By putting some of the tokens into one realm and other tokens into another realm you can configure which unassigned tokens are available in which realm.

To put tokens into a realm, you can select several tokens and choose “set token realm”.
