Configuring IIS for Single Sign-On from Web Clients

Article ID: 269  |  Last updated: 18 Feb, 2016

Note: The following information applies to TestTrack web clients and the Seapine License Server Web Admin.

Seapine applications support single sign-on for Active Directory users. Single sign-on allows you to use your network credentials to automatically log in instead of using a separate username and password.

To use single sign-on, web clients must be hosted by a Microsoft IIS web server with Windows integrated authentication enabled and users must use one of the supported browsers for the Seapine License Server or TestTrack.

Note: On Mac and Linux, users are prompted to enter a username and password the first time they log in to the web client. If the credentials are saved, single sign-on can be used the next time the user logs in.

The following information explains how to configure IIS to enable single sign-on. See the License Server Admin help for additional single sign-on requirements and steps for enabling it on the license server.

IIS 7 and later
