Sharepoint 2007 - Authentication - provide central user credentials

Hi all,

we are accessing a sharepoint 2007 server from on of our customers via SA (7.0R7).

We have only a generic user account to access the sharepoint for all our users.

Is it possible save these user credentials on tha SA so that the user does not have to authenticate?
I have already tried to configure "Remote SSO" - but this ist not really working.

Re: Sharepoint 2007 - Authentication - provide central user credentials

My experience has been that Sharepoint does not use form POST (remote SSO) but generally NTLM or Basic auth (you can check this in the dsrecord OR how you login directly); though the same basic steps apply in any case.

 

For the basic/NTLM auth type:

1) Users>Resource Policies>Web>SSO General

2) New label

3) Credential type: static

4) put the name and password you will use

5) Save changes

6) Users>Resource Policies>Web>SSO>Kerberos/NTLM/Basic Auth

7) New Policy

8) Put the URL in that you want the policy to apply to

9) Choose the auth type and then select the label you created in #2

10) Save changes

 

If you are using a form-based login for Sharepoint:
1) Users>Resource Policies>Web>SSO>Form Post

2) New policy

3) Create the URL definition

4) In the username and password fields in the credential table, type in the credentials you will use

5) Save changes

Re: Sharepoint 2007 - Authentication - provide central user credentials

Try this:

Within your realm definition - General Tab - select "Additional Authentication Server" - then predefine the user credential and user password. Now you can use that variable for SSO. It would be <username2>

Re: Sharepoint 2007 - Authentication - provide central user credentials

thank for your reply - generally this is a good solution.

but we have aleready configured an additional auth. server because we are authenticating with ldap and rsa user.

are there any other options?
