SSO Authentication Mode


The Windows-SSO-Authentication or “Authentication” is a more conservative approach for the user authentication.
Here only the username and password will be checked against the AD.
Neither group assignment nor the creation of users will be done automatically.

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


Open Jedox Web and navigate to the “Administration” Tab.

  1. Select “Users”
  2. Add user


  1. Add user name, full name and a password (this will not be used for the authentication)
  2. Activate the checkmark “Active”
  3. Go to “Assigned groups”

  1. Select a group
  2. Assign the group to the user and make sure that the group is assigned to a role
  3. Save the settings


Next SSO configuration step: SSO Configuration of a Browser as Jedox Web Client and / or SSO Configuration for Excel Add-in
