The Anonymous Access feature provides a flexible approach to security by allowing access to the Thinfinity Workspace Web Portal and/or specific access profiles without the need for authentication. By incorporating this feature, users can strengthen security measures while maintaining some flexibility in managing access controls.
The purpose of this article is to explain the functionality and guide users on how to configure the Allow Anonymous Access feature in Thinfinity Workspace.

I. Prerequisites

Before proceeding with the configuration, ensure you have:
  • Thinfinity Workspace v7.0.2.119 or higher installed and accessible.

II. Anonymous Access Configuration

There are three settings related to Anonymous Access.

1.    The first setting, defined at the Authentication Level, enables or restricts access to the Web Portal without requiring user authentication, as long as at least one connection profile is enabled for anonymous access. If disabled, it forces each user to go through the sign-in process to be identified.
  1. To activate it, go to the Authentication tab of the Thinfinity Configuration Manager, and select the Allow Anonymous Access checkbox. This setting is only accessible when the Allow Anonymous Access Profiles option is enabled.


2.   The second setting, defined at the Individual Access Profile Level, determines whether a specific profile is allowed to be accessed by any user (including anonymous users). If disabled, authorized specific users or groups must be defined and associated with that connection.
    • To activate it, go to the Access Profiles tab of the Thinfinity Configuration Manager, then select the specific profile you want to configure and click the Edit button.


3.    Now, in the Profile Editor, select the Permissions tab and select the Allow Anonymous Access checkbox. This setting is only accessible if the Allow Anonymous Access Profiles option is enabled.



4.    The third setting, defined at the general Access Profiles level, determines whether anonymous access profiles are enabled or not. This allows you to restrict anonymous access to all profiles with a single click. If disabled, it can be individually enabled for specific profiles or provide authorization for specific users or groups. This setting applies to existing and new profiles in general and has effect on the Anonymous Access setting for the Web Portal.
  1. To activate it, go to the Access Profiles tab of the Thinfinity Configuration Manager and select the Allow Anonymous Access Profiles checkbox.


While Thinfinity Workspace is delivered with anonymous access enabled by default, you can easily customize it to meet your security needs and standards (such as ZTNA, VPN, ACL, etc.).
By customizing these settings, you can achieve different levels of security for both the Web Portal and access profiles within Thinfinity Workspace.
