Sun Glassfish Web Space Server and OpenSSO Enterprise
By Bert Van Beeck on Feb 25, 2009
Sun Glassfish Space Server v10.0 is build on top of LifeRay Portal v5.2.
One of the nice add-ons (Xcellerators) Sun Microsystems provides today in the Space Server umbrella are the OpenOffice add-on and the OpenSSO add-on.
Without this add-on, Space Server can already connect to OpenSSO through the REST-based interface provided through the settings console.
This however only allows to authenticate through OpenSSO, and to inherit the basic user attributes through OpenSSO.
It does not allow you to connect to Access Manager 7.x (does not support REST), and it cannot map community names to LDAP groups/roles/filtered roles, nor can it map the realm users to Space Server organisations.
If you need any of these functionalities, you will be very happy with the OpenSSO add-on (that could also be considered the AM add-on).
If you have a supported release of Space Server, this add-on will be automatically available to you through the updatetool - along with other Xcellerators.
Instructions on how to install the add-on can be found here : http://wikis.sun.com/display/websynergy/OpenSSO+add-on .
