MarkView All Components - Single Sign On ( SSO ) for MarkView

Summary

5021

MarkView Version 9.0 and earlier:
ERP System: All

MarkView versions prior to 9.1 do not come pre-integrated with any Single Sign On (SSO) solution. These MarkView versions do have configurable callouts that can be leveraged to provide this integration, but this requires customization

Customization of MarkView products to work with SSO products would require an engagement with the Kofax Professional Services Team.

For more information on SSO configuration, please contact your Kofax Business Development Manager or your Kofax Account Executive.

MarkView Version 9.1:
ERP System: Oracle

MarkView version 9.1 onwards supports Single Sign-On (SSO) using a general approach of parsing the user credentials out of the HTTP header or cookie.

The SSO feature should be enabled via MV_ENABLE_SINGLE_SIGN_ON preference (requires restart). Please refer to the MarkView 9.1 Administrator's Guide Volume 2 section 'Setting up Single Sign-On' for more information regarding Single Sign-On (SSO) configuration.

MarkView will support both options and provide an ability to configure the sources of credentials (headers or cookies) via below preferences:

  1. AUTH_SSO_USERNAME_HEADER_FIELD - The name of the request header that contains the username. It defaults to SM_USER, for compatibility with Siteminder.
  2. AUTH_SSO_USER_CREDENTIALS_HEADER_FIELD - The name of the request header that contains the user credentials. If this is set to the default (SM_USER) MarkView ignores this header field. If set to any other value, MarkView uses that value as the header field that contains the password for the user.
  3. AUTH_SSO_USERNAME_COOKIE_NAME - The name of the cookie that contains the username. It defaults to SM_USER, for compatibility with Siteminder.
  4. AUTH_SSO_USER_CREDENTIALS_COOKIE_NAME - The name of the cookie that contains the user credentials. If this is set to the default (SM_USER) MarkView ignores this cookie. If set to any other value, MarkView uses that value as the cookie that contains the password for the user.

Please refer to the MarkView 9.1 Administrator's Guide Volume 1 for more details regarding the above preferences.
