Cross Domain Single Sign-On
External Website Bookmarks can be created for application offloading portals to achieve a single point of access for users. This allows users to automatically log in to application offloading portals after logging into the main portal.
To use Cross Domain Single Sign-on (SSO)
- Create two or more portals with the same shared domain (from Virtual Host Domain name) and that need authentication. One portal should be a regular portal. These portals are also in the same SMA appliance’s domain so that a user can log in to both with the same credentials.
- Log in to the portal and create a bookmark.
- Set the service to External Web Site.
- Enable Automatically log in for the bookmark that enables Cross Domain SSO for this bookmark.
- Specify a Host that is a portal with the same shared domain name.
- Save the bookmark and launch it. The new portal is logged in automatically without any credential.
The shared domain names do not need to be identical; a sub-domain also works. For example, one portal is a regular portal whose virtual host domain name is “
www.example.com” and its shared domain name is “
.example.com.” The other portal’s virtual host domain name is “
intranet.eng.example.com” and the shared domain name is “
.eng.example.com.” If a bookmark to
xyz.eng.example.com is created in the
www.example.com portal, Cross Domain SSO works because “.eng.example.com” is a sub-domain of “
