  • You might want to check out DeployR, included in Microsoft R Server.


    Hope this helps,

  • Hello,

    Not sure I correctly get your question, but, I will try to answer in a best way I can.

    First, Shiny Server (Pro) is not a product from Microsoft, and therefore, is not part of the Microsoft R Server stack. It is an RStudio product.

    Then, as mentioned by David, DeployR, giving the possibility to provide web services in front of R scripts (amond other things), requires user authentication. The same for Shiny Server.

    One thing that may be important, is that if you want to use PAM (on Linux) or any other integrated solution for authentication (e.g. LDAP), you have to use the Pro version for Shiny, and the commercial version of R Server.

    Hope this helps

    Best Regards
