Single Sign-On

GeoMedia Smart Client offers a direct integration to ActiveDirectory (AD).




To enable Single Sign-On on the client side add sso=true to your GMSC url.







At startup time of GMSC the applications compares the list of AD groups to the GMSC roles and assigns all where the name matches.




Active Directory Groups assigned to the user:

  • IT-Infrastructure
  • GIS-Users
  • Marketing
  • GIS-Administrators
  • ...


Smart Client Roles:

  • GIS-Users
  • GIS-Administrators
  • Wastewater
  • Water
  • ...

In this case the user gets automatically all permissions granted who are assigned to the GIS-Users role and GIS-Administrators role.

Note: You don't have to setup any users in the GMSC environment! Only the roles must be configured in GMSC.



With GeoMedia Smart Client 2018 multi-level hierarchy is supported within AD groups.

Just the tip:


If you run application pools of GMSC in IIS under different account (security rules, etc.) let say DOMAIN\gmsc, this account has to have privileges to query the active directory.

Anyone know what have to be set on AD in order to GMSC recognize the user language?

If I use a GMSC user properly configured, GMSC is in correct language; but when the we use SSO the interface is in English.

What privileges does a domain user require to query active directory?

In version 2015, I did the configuration to use authentication integrated with Active Directory, adding the following piece of code to default.aspx.


	if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(applicationArguments["sso"]))
        applicationArguments.Add("sso", "true");

I've tried this in the last version and it didn't work. So, this is not supported anymore? The only way to to this is to add the parameter to the url?


Thanks in advance,
