Issue/Introduction

We're trying to use the Rally excel add-in v2.4.4 and using Broadcom OKTA SSO IDP URL we were not able to login - Possible 404 error.

 

Environment

Release : SAAS

Component : AGILE CENTRAL

Cause

Rally follows the SAML specification for SSO authentication. This specification requires a value called the RelayState=RelayState=noRedirect to be passed among the participants for an OKTA SSO authentication handshake. 

Resolution

1. Open Excel.
2. Click on Rally Tab.

3. Click - Connect to CA Agile Central

4. Change the Basic authentication to SSO



5.  Use the URL parameter named TargetResource to set the RelayState so the URL should be 

https://<CustomerACS>?fromURI=/app/broadcomincexternal_rally_1/exk1gdbaindeR1Jrj1d8/sso/saml&RelayState=noRedirect


6. To know your ACS URL please contact your internal Rally subscription administrator (The ACS is located on the Subscription page as Identity Provider URL) or Rally support if you are having trouble constructing a URL.
