I've setup SharePoint 2019 and I'm having an issue windows authentication where a login box is shown to the site. I've read tons of doc and here is what I have done:

Web Application port: 443 Full Read for accounts:

<Share Point User>, 
All Users (windows)

Under the Site. In Site Permissions I added:

Site Visitors - Read

Advanced Permission Settings:

Everyone - Domain Group - Read
SharePoint Group - Read

but every time a user goes to the site page it asks for authentication. Any ideas on what I'm missing. Its setup to use AD authentication.
For example, if I set up a domain user as a Farm Administrator and have them go to the central admin page: http://someserver:11667 it works with the page showing but on the site page it prompts for a login still.

I've seen articles about adding the site to your local browser as trusted sites. But since we using Windows 10 client and Window 2016 Server with SharePoint 2019, I would have thought it would work. I'm testing on Edge, Chrome and Firefox.

Edge and Firefox, this is expected. Add the site to the Trusted Sites list in IE and then test with Chrome.

  • So there is no way to have auto detect without making client-side changes? – adviner Nov 9 at 15:13
  • Typically IE (thus Chrome) will treat URLs without dots as they're in the Intranet Zone, but all of that depends on your configuration. Edge does not have a concept of Zones and Firefox has some manual changes you can make in about:config (there are some FF GPOs now, as well, that can handle this). – Trevor Seward Nov 9 at 15:15
