Configuring Single Sign-On (SSO) for an Integrated AutoVue Environment

A common topic that our Support team receives from customers is the topic of single sign-on (SSO). Specifically, customers are interested in implementing SSO for their AutoVue environment such that users' authorization to open files from a back-end system (e.g. DMS, PLM, ERP, etc) into AutoVue is automatically handled without the user having to re-authenticate.

While the overall configuration process for SSO may be somewhat complex, the AutoVue-specific aspects are extremely straightforward, and can be summarized as follows:

  1. The user must have their web browser configured to accept cookies.
  2. The AutoVue applet must be configured to forward the correct cookies (the ones required for SSO) to the AutoVue server.

That's it. No additional SSO-specific configuration is required on the AutoVue client or server. The AutoVue server automatically includes the cookies when communicating the integration component (e.g. the VueLink, or AutoVue ISDK-based integration), and it's up to the network administrator to ensure that all components between the AutoVue server and the integration component are configured correctly to enable SSO.

For more info regarding SSO configuration and troubleshooting for AutoVue – including a particular limitation of AutoVue's SSO capabilities with regards to the 'HttpOnly' flag – please refer to KM Note 1990144.1 in the My Oracle Support portal.
