SSO Single Sign-on between jazz-Products

Noriyuki Egi (7411818) | asked Jul 21 '10, 4:45 a.m.

How can we build single sign-on(sso) environment between RTC, Insight, and FocalPoint?
I think that if the authentication server like TAM(Tivoli Access Manager) is set up, it can be.

Does anyone know something about this, please let me know.

Great. I am also interested, in SSO with RQM with WAS v7 and TAM. The SSO will be from TAM to RQM.

We have a tech tip on that describes how to configure to use WAS SSO support today:

We have seen customers successfully deploy using TAM for SSO as well. Documentation for this is (in the form of a tech tip) is forthcoming but not yet published.

TAM/WebSeal authentication works fine with Jazz based products.

Following Ritchie's post, we have deployed RTC solution with TAM based authentication and SSO using LTPA at a customer enterprise environment.

Which kind of auth method is your WebSeal environment using? Briefly talking:

- Basic Auth: there's no special consideration for this. It's mainly a WAS and TAM configuration. Once integrated both, the web and the eclipse clients works well with TAM.

- Forms based auth: web UI works fine once TAM/WebSeal configured. For the eclipse client, the main concern comes from the headers eclipse expects to recognize it as a login form that have to be provided to it (from a WebSeal's custom auth form).

Note I'm talking about RTC (and corresponding JTS version), and TAM v6.1

Thank you, Jorge.
Seems that we do not have a single TAM.

Will it be possible to use SSO with TAM with 2 instances? I mean, to configure one single WAS to get user authentication info from two TAMs, and then authenticate in Jazz, of course.
How would be this done in the WAS admin console?
