SSO or Single Sign-on

SSO access is based on a proper injection of HTTP header by proxy server. The actual data injected will vary from one XTRF installation to another. One sure thing is, it can be set up only on a server you host, SaaS is out of the question. The administrator, who will configure it, needs to know ins and outs of your IT infrastructure, how users login internally etc. It is best done by your IT staff, but you can hire our specialists as well.

To access Home Portal without logging-in, the following configuration steps are required:

  • XTRF needs to be hidden behind a proxy server that connects to services like CROWD, MS Active Directory, or LDAP

  • The proxy server needs to force user authentication and set a valid username in each HTTP request passed to XTRF

  • XTRF needs to be switched in SSO mode and the HTTP header field name containing username has to be configured (via GUI)

  • An example configuration file is available. 

Vendor and Client Portals do not support SSO, so passwords are required for their users every time they need to sign in.
