Starting the SSO agent
The SSO agent can be directly started via the desktop link that is automatically created when it is installed. The login data correspond to the normal user data for the client.
To log in, the desired database and the associated login data are firstly selected. The SSO agent makes all of the databases configured on the client available. It is also possible to create profiles as usual so that the connection data for certain databases can be used efficiently in the future.
Context menu functionality
After successfully logging in, the SSO Agent firstly runs in the background. Right click on the icon in the system tray to open the context menu.
- Disconnect: Connect to database/disconnect from database. (All connections are shown for multiple databases)
- Login enables you to log into another database
- Disable/enable autofill allows you the option of temporarily disabling automatic login
- A diverse range of variables can be via the “Settings”
- Install browser add-on starts the installation of the Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox add-on.
- Connect with add-on enables the add-on and agent to be paired (only available in terminal server operation)
- The port for connection to the database does not usually need to be changed. If it is otherwise occupied, it can be newly defined here. If the port is changed here, it must also be changed in the add-on.
- In terminal server operation, a range of ports can be defined via Terminal Server Ports which the terminal server will use for the connection. In this case, the default is 1000. Adjustments are usually not necessary. In terminal server operation, the so-called terminal server ID can also be retrieved. This is a unique ID that correctly identifies the agent on the add-on. The ID must be specified in the add-on when making the first connection.
- The desktop notifications display various information, such as entering data
- Start with Windows includes the SSO Agent in the autostart menu
- The lower section shows which add-ons are currently linked to theSSO Agent
The SSO agent in terminal server operation
The SSO Agent firstly needs to be paired to the desired add-ons in order to start terminal server operation.
First, select the point Connect to add-on from the context menu in the agent. In the next window, select the desired browser. The browser will then open.
and the settings of the add-on will be displayed. Usually, the terminal server ID has already been entered here. You just need to confirm it.
Interplay with offline databases
The SSO agent can also establish connections to offline databases. You can directly connect to the offline database, if one exists, at login. If there is no server connection, the connection to the offline database is directly suggested.
