Post by kavitha2002 » Tue Nov 06, 2018 2:19 pm

Is it possible to have SSO in Integrated security Mode 2 or 3. I would like to configure.

Which client are you referring to? It makes a difference.

What version? 10.2.2 is possible, for PAX I'd say that TM1Web is a mighty challenge (Architect & Perspectives is dead easy as long as you set up delegation). WLP based TM1Web doesn't seem to be working with SSO in 2.0.4, maybe it has changed since.
Using CAM for SSO is much easier to configure (as strange as it might seem).

I would like to implement SSO with Mode 3, Only mode=5 and mode 3 works with SSO. Am I right??

Ya, I too read TM1 Web and Pax is quite challenging, should have two different tm1web instance one for tm1web and another for tm1pax-tm1web.
Is there any guide to create two instances for tm1web.

One more clarification, in mode=5 configuring Active Directory and Mode 2 configured AD LDAP without IBM Cognos..

What is the different between mode 5 and mode2?? May be cloud support in mode=5?

Mode 2 is integrated login (using Kerberos or NTLM) OR native security, client's choice. Mode 5 is CAM (Cognos Access Manager). They are not the same thing although they both can utilize your AD for authentication.

Read the documentation, it's all spelled out clearly.

Mode 1 is TM1 Native security
Mode 2 using Ldap authentication on Native security, its using the windows credentials but all the LDAP groups are imported into TM1 database using ETLDAP tool.
Mode 3 is IntegratedLogin using Ldap authentication on Kerberos security, used mainly in network set up, whereas import all the users with domain on UniqueId in }clientProperties using ETLDAP tool. - SSO possibe but tm1web not supported in all versions.
Mode 4 using IBM CAM security - supports user in IBM groups and TM1 admin groups
Mode 5 using IBM CAM Security - supports both IBM Cognos groups and TM1 groups - SSO possibe

Is my understanding right?

No, your understanding is not correct. Both Mode 2 and 3 would be considered integrated login with authentication to AD. The difference between 2 and 3 is that 2 allows EITHER AD authentication OR native TM1 security, based on the client's choice, while 3 only accepts AD authentication. All that stuff about importing users via ETLDAP is optional. You can just go and update the UniqueID field manually or even use a rule (which is what we do). Also, the authentication for both can be either Kerberos or NTLM.

A common scenario is to use mode 3 for production and mode 2 for development. This way you can test security changes in development with your own test IDs only in TM1 without having to create test accounts in AD. Once you deploy to production then it is only accessible via AD authentication which satisfies all your ID and password requirements for the organization.

Working with mode 2 in TM1 pax, if my understanding is right, I have chosen the Native authentication, and gave the "admin" and password which is TM1 credentials but it not working. -- error incorrect username and password

chosen the windows authentication, gave AD credentials that was working. I didnt configure the IntegratedSecurityMode3 yet.
