Configuring user authentication
The Authentication tab enables you to configure and manage user access for the TrueSight Capacity Optimization and TrueSight consoles. In addition, from the Authentication tab you can view the details of the Remedy Single Sign-On (Remedy SSO) server and TrueSight Presentation server that is configured with TrueSight Capacity Optimization. From TrueSight Capacity Optimization 11.0, the TrueSight Capacity Optimization and TrueSight consoles use the Remedy SSO server to provide single sign-on for authenticating users and enabling them to access the available features depending on the activities assigned to their user roles.
You can access the TrueSight Capacity Optimization console only if you have configured the same Remedy SSO server that is configured with the TrueSight Presentation Server and both Remedy SSO server and the Presentation Server are up and running.
Access to the views and other options are managed according to the roles defined in TrueSight Capacity Optimization. For more details, see Adding and managing roles.
