Single Sign-on

To achieve Single Sign-on, the following need to be considered:

Synchronizing users
  • Intellicus provides JAVA/HTTP APIs to manage users from a host application
  • You can choose to:
    • Create/Edit users in Intellicus when users are created/ edited in host application OR
    • Check and Create/Edit users in Intellicus whenever a user logs in to host application
  • User Mapping
    • The users in Intellicus shall be shadow users (without storing their passwords in Intellicus system)
    • Each user will map one-to-one with host application user
Passing Credentials when navigating to Reports

When user navigates from host application to Intellicus the credentials can be passed as:

  • Hidden HTTP Parameter

    HTTP Parameter

  • Session Variables (Only in case of same web server)
    season variables
  • Following mechanisms can be used to verify passed credentials again in Intellicus
  • Call Back
    • You can Plug-in your custom code to authenticate passed Userid (loginname), Password (password), Orgid(Customerid) from your database.
  • External authenticators
    • You can configure external authenticators such as LDAP
Data Filtering
  • UserId and CustomerId are now available with Intellicus as passed from host application
  • Data filtering at User level or Customer level can be achieved by:
    • Each Report SQL will be designed using parameters (place holders) in the WHERE clause to filter dataExample: (Select … where Tab1.CustomerID=<%CustomerId%>
  • Intellicus Report Server will replace the parameter values just before SQL execution
