Enabling AR authentication for bypassing other authentication methods

As a Remedy Single Sign-On administrator, you can enable AR authentication to bypass other authentication methods configured for a realm. This feature might be useful to you if you want to provide an ability for administrator users to bypass the primary authentication (for example, SAML), and log in to applications protected by Remedy SSO via AR authentication.

To enable bypassing AR System authentication

  1. Click Test to verify the connection works.

When you have enabled AR authentication for bypassing other authentication methods, to get authenticated against AR System, end users existing in AR System can log in to their applications by using the following URL: http://<host_name>:<port_number>/rsso/start?bypass-auth=true&tenant=<realmId>&goto=<application_url>, where <application_url> is the URL of the application that the users want to access. Example of <application_url>: for BMC Digital Workplace. Each application has own URL.
