Overview SSO (Single Sign On)


Instead of using a simple LDAP authentication, it is possible to use the integrated Windows Authentication, also known as Active Directory Single Sign On (AD SSO). Since Jedox 4.0, Jedox supports native SSO with AD. For authentication, newer versions of Windows use Kerberos per default. Older versions of Windows used NTLM.
Users who are logged on to the Microsoft Windows system are connected directly with Jedox In-Memory DB without further logon prompts.

To use Single Sign On, an Active Directory (AD) environment is mandatory.
If the Jedox server and the AD are not running in the same domain, it may be necessary that the Service Principal Name (SPN) must be set.

As next steps you have to configurate your Jedox installation (select matching OS), select a SSO mode you’d like to use and adjust your client(s):

Jedox Server OS
Windows Configuration
Linux Configuration
SSO Mode
Authorization Mode
Authentication Mode
Jedox Client
Configuration of Excel Add-in
and / or
Configuration of a Browser as Jedox Web Client

After these configuration steps, SSO will work. Only if you’ve scaled or clustered Jedox, you have to do additional configurations: in this case read also SSO Technical Information.
