How to use Microsoft Active Directory in Geospatial Portal?

Hi all,

 

My customer plans to use MS Active Directory authorization for 'single-sign-on" in Geospatial Portal and Consumer Portal for mobile users.

WebServer is GeoMedia WebMap Adv - One.

 

Do we need to use Geospatial SDI for AD authorization?

 

Are there any guidelines for setting up such an authorization method? 

And is it possible at all?

 

 

Thanks,

Hi Kirill,

 

Geospatial Portal will handle Windows Authentication natively, here's how to enable it (scroll down to To enable Windows Authentication for Geospatial Portal instance):

You don't require the Geospatial SDI - the STS service is used only if you require SSO access among Portal and SDI-secured web services.
