Starting with the CLM 6.0 software release, Jazz Security Architecture (JSA) SSO is available as an authentication option. Based on OpenID Connect , the authentication is not performed by the container hosting Jazz applications, but instead is delegated to a separate Jazz Authorization Server (JAS), which performs the role of an OpenID Connect provider (OP). JAS also provides Single Sign On feature to the applications that are configured with it.

 Hi @Bartosz Chrabski

What is Difference between JAS and LDAP

Peter Morgenthaler commented Mar 02 '21, 6:01 p.m.

 LDAP stores the user information/password etc. JAS connects to the LDAP and asked the LDAP if a users credentials are correct. It can also query for other user information stored in the LDAP. Typically an organisation uses an LDAP (like windows Active Directory or a linux LDAP) to store each uesrs details. You would use the JAS to connect to the LDAP so you do not need to maintain two sets of accounts. 

Using container authentication works in a similar way to JAS except that each container needs to be configured to connect to a LDAP.
