 Hi,
     FORM authentication will use the credentials of a CLM user, whether it's an LDAP user, Tomcat, etc...  "JTS" authentication uses OAuth and requires a consumer key/secret be provided in order to authenticate.  So if you switch the XDC Authentication mode to JTS, you must also switch the credentials to specify a key/secret on the JTS server.  One of the benefits in doing that is not having to worry about updating the password in the configuration (whether it be Insight XDC files, Java ETL config, DCC, etc...) in the event an LDAP password changes.
