Deploying IT Data Analytics with Remedy Single Sign-On

Use this topic to understand the TrueSight IT Data Analytics deployment when you use Remedy Single Sign-On for user authentication. Using Remedy Single Sign-On can be useful to get a unified experience of the product when you integrate with TrueSight Presentation Server. Unless you use Remedy Single Sign-On for user authentication, you cannot use IT Data Analytics in conjunction with TrueSight Presentation Server. Also, it is important that you configure the same Remedy Single Sign-On server that you are using with TrueSight Presentation Server.

This topic contains the following information:

Prerequisite

TrueSight Presentation Server must be configured with the same Remedy Single Sign-On too.

Understanding a Remedy Single Sign-On deployment

Remedy Single Sign-On maintains a mapping between users, user groups, and the credentials (user name and password) needed to access the following products:

  • IT Data Analytics
  • TrueSight Presentation Server

You can manage users and user groups via Remedy Single Sign-On, but you must manage the user group-role mapping in IT Data Analytics.

When you configure the Remedy Single Sign-On server (while installing the Console Server), a connection is established between the IT Data Analytics server and the Remedy Single Sign-On server. Additionally, default users and user groups are created in Remedy Single Sign-On and the default user groups are mapped to default roles. This association between users, user groups, and roles can help you easily log on to IT Data Analytics with the default credentials (user name and password) depending on the user role.

To use custom users, make sure that the users are in a user group that is already assigned to a role in IT Data Analytics. If the user group is not already assigned to one of the roles available in IT Data Analytics or if you want to use custom user groups, then you must manually associate the user group with a role by to the topic in Administration > Roles.
