Brief introduction to the Remedy Single Sign-On product

Remedy Single Sign-On (Remedy SSO) is an authentication system that enables users to enter their credentials only once for authenticating in a multi-software environment. Upon authentication, users automatically gain access to all applications that are integrated with Remedy SSO. In TrueSight Presentation Server, Remedy SSO supports only the following authentication types:

  • Local
  • LDAP/AD
  • SAMLv2

Note

The Infrastructure Management administrator console and TrueOps mobile app does not support the SAMLv2 authentication type.

In TrueSight Presentation Server, Remedy SSO does not support the following authentication types:

  • Kerberos
  • CERT

Based on your organization's requirements, you can configure any of the authentication types to authenticate the users for TrueSight product components. To configure and use these authentication types you must do the following:

  • Install the Remedy Single Sign-On server and configure it with an authentication server such as LDAP/AD or SAMLv2.
  • Create the required tenants (realms), user groups, and users on the Remedy Single Sign-On Admin console.
  • Integrate the Remedy Single Sign-On server with the TrueSight Presentation Server during the TrueSight Presentation Server installation or upgrade.
