SSO with another WAR

Hi all,

I have another war deployed on the same tomcat as alfresco and share. 

I would like to setup SSO so user can access application if he is authenticated in Share.

I think it will require to setup some security filter in my web app.

Thanks for any tips where to find some examples

It really depends on what you want to use for your SSO authentication.

I use CAS - GitHub - wrighting/alfresco-cas: A project designed to show how to integrate Alfresco with CAS singl...  - but others exist.

Also depends on your Alfresco version as some work better than others with SSO.

Hi Ian,

I am running on 5.2.e / 5.2.d

in my case I just want to restrict access to application if user is not authenticated. I don't need to load users or groups to perform authorization.

Currently my temporary workaround just for testing I load javascript in header and call GET "/share/service/modules/authenticated" to check if user has valid session Smiley Happy if not forward them to share login page
