How to authenticate against SSO enabled CLM server using REST API

Marko Tomljenovic (3163480) | asked Jul 09 '18, 8:44 a.m.


we have developed quite a big number of support tools that are accessing certain CLM applications (RTC, DNG, GC) via REST API. We have now switched SSO (single sign on) on for one of our test servers. Then these tools did no more work because the way the authentication works has changed. I have found a solution but I am not sure if it is complete.
Can you point me to some official IBM snippets/documentation that can help me resolve the issue?

We are using CLM 6.0.5 together with WAS (no JAS).

I believe this is the resource you want to look at:

Hello Ralph,

thanks for the page reference. I already knew this page before, but it was too much information (at least for me). I made our solution work by reverse engineering what the web client is doing with the server.
I was just hoping that somebody within IBM could share a code snippet to be reused rather then forcing everyone to read the big document and then translate it into (hopefully) working code.

I would share if I would have code, unfortunately I don't.
I think you could look into the Eclipse Lyo project. I did that and there is code that deals with this stuff, but I found it hard to isolate what I needed. You might only have to implement the scenarios that actually happen based on your environment.

Thanks. My initial implementation (for non-SSO servers) was based on the Lyo project. But now there is nothing available related to SSO.

Thanks anyways for your hints.
