Deployment options for Remedy SSO with TrueSight Operations Management

All TrueSight Operations Management deployments require the Remedy Single Sign-On (or Remedy SSO) server for authenticating users and managing tenant information.

You can deploy Remedy SSO in one of the following ways:

  • By using the TrueSight installer for Remedy SSO - This is a consolidated installer that contains all the prerequisite software for Remedy SSO, and can be used for a unified install experience. It only supports PostgreSQL database.
  • By using the Remedy SSO installer - This contains only the Remedy SSO Server. It doesn't contain prerequisite software, such as JRE and Tomcat. It supports databases like MS SQLServer and Oracle, apart from PostgreSQL.
Use the following sections in this document to make your choice.
