SSO Authentication Mode

Windows SSO authentication is a more conservative approach for user authentication than SSO authorization. In the case of authentication, only the username and password will be checked against the AD.

To activate, add windows-sso-authentication in the palo.ini.

Neither group assignment nor the creation of users will be done automatically.

Pros: more flexibility Cons: higher risk, more maintenance
  • User management, groups and rights can be managed inside of Jedox without dependencies to the AD structure.
  • Users are not created automatically.
  • Groups are not assigned automatically.
  • Users and groups need to be created and managed inside of Jedox for each change.

Steps:

Open Jedox Web and navigate to the Administration tab. Select Users (1, below), then click Add user (2).

Add user name and a full name (1, below), matching the domain name of the active directory. and a password (this will not be used for the authentication). Activate this user with the Active check box (2). 

Next, open the Assigned groups tab (3).

Assign this user to a group by moving an available group (1, below) into the Assigned groups box (2). Make sure that the group is assigned to a role. Click Save (3).
