With single sign-on, users can log in one time to gain access to multiple software programs or resources. Under Single Sign-On Settings, you select whether to enable single sign-on authentication and allow users transparent access to secured pages on your website. If you enable single sign-on, third-party single sign-on systems can authenticate users by way of a shared key and time algorithm in a querystring, such as &u=Supervisor&t=151256232434&m=282FE2ECF98F5FFEDAAB12A38F3A3D54. Under Single Sign-On Settings, you can enter the information required by multiple third-party single sign-on systems to authenticate users.
Note: Integration of your website with a third-party single sign-on system requires additional custom programming. For information about the code necessary to integrate with a single sign-on system, consult your single sign-on system provider.
To enable or configure Single Sign-On, refer to How to set up Single Sign-On (48574).
