BMC Release Process Management can use Central Authentication Service (CAS), which is a single sign-on (SSO) web protocol. In SSO, a user uses a single user ID and password to log on to multiple applications. By using CAS, web applications authenticate users without gaining access to a user's security credentials, such as a password.

To enable CAS authentication

  1. Select Settings > General.
  2. In the Authentication pane, select LDAP Authentication.
  3. Select CAS Authentication.
  4. In the CAS Server field, enter the CAS server URL.
    For example: http://ServerName:<port>/cas
  5. Click Save.
  6. Restart the BMC Release Process Management service to apply your changes.

    Note

    Before you restart the BMC Release Process Management service, ensure that no steps are currently in progress.

After enabling CAS authentication

  • CAS users can log on to BMC Release Process Management by using their CAS credentials.
  • Root users can log on to BMC Release Process Management by using the BMC Release Process Management credentials.
  • If the CAS user exists in BMC Release Process Management, then after logon, the user is taken to the Dashboard page of the application.
  • If the CAS user does not exist in BMC Release Process Management, then after logon, the user must enter first name, last name, and email address. The User role is assigned to this new user.
  • Use the following URL to log on as a BMC Release Process Management administrator:
    https://ServerName:8443/brpm/users/login?brpmadmin=true&unauthenticated=true
  • After you enable CAS authentication, only CAS users can log to the application.
