Enabling Report Builder for Jazz Security Architecture single sign-on

In a multiple application environment, you can simplify user access to the servers by implementing single sign-on (SSO). With SSO, users can sign on once to gain access to all servers without having to reauthenticate for each server. After you upgrade Report Builder to a version 6 release, to use Jazz Security Architecture single sign-on (SSO) authentication, it must first be enabled.

Before you begin

Optional: If you do not require secure connections, before you run the setup wizard and enable SSO, you can disable the security settings and permit unencrypted connections to Report Builder, including user login credentials. Disabling SSL can create a security exposure where a malicious user within the network can attack the system. In non SSL mode, add the following entry to the JTS_6.X_install_dir/server/conf/rs/app.properties file:

disable_secure_cookies=true

Important: Before you can enable Jazz Security Architecture single sign-on, the Jazz™ Team Server and Report Builder must be upgraded to a version 6 release, and single sign-on must be enabled for the Jazz Team Server where the applications are registered. See Enabling ELM applications for Jazz Security Architecture single sign-on.

Procedure

  1. If the Report Builder is not at version 6 or later, upgrade, and verify that the upgrade was successful.
  2. Go to the JTS Administration page and, in the list of registered applications, delete the Report Builder registration and then add it again with the same values.
  3. Go to the Report Builder Data Sources page.
  4. For each LQE data source connection, under Authentication type, select Jazz Security Architecture SSO.
  5. Click Test Connection and click Save.
  6. Restart the server.
