IBM Webseal (Tivoli Access Manager) is not directly supported by Alfreco but should work using External authentication (3.2+)


Alfresco side



  1. add the external subsystem to your auth chain
  2. set external.authentication.proxyUserName to the empty string
  3. set external.authentication.proxyHeader to what webseal will send to alfresco
  4. lock your firewall on alfresco to allow access to port 8080 only from the webseal front end.

Webseal Tivoli Access Manager Side


Set the name of the auth header to the same value of external.authentication.proxyHeader set in A)3)
