Issue/Introduction

How can we configure SSO with RA

Environment

Release : 6.7, 6.6

Component : CA RELEASE AUTOMATION RELEASE OPERATIONS CENTER

Resolution

On steps on how to configure SSO in Release Automation please refer to product guide 6.6 and 6.7 . As from the feedback we came to know about some terminology leading to some sort of ambiguity while configuring SSO in RA. This document provides a clarification on same.

 
Configuration: webapps/datamangement/WEB-INF/distributed.properties
 
ra.security.profile=saml
ra.security.saml.metadata.entity-base-url=https://ratesting:8443/datamanagement
ra.security.saml.context.scheme=https
ra.security.saml.context.serverName=ratesting
ra.security.saml.context.serverPort=8443
ra.security.saml.context.includeServerPort=true
ra.security.saml.context.contextPath=/datamanagement
 
The terms which create some ambiguity are highlighted above, please find clarification on same.
  • ratesting: This is the NAC Server IP/ Hostname. It should not be localhost as this will be part of SP metadata.xml that is generated (refer step 6 of guide)
  • 8443: It doesn't mandate the NAC should be on running on SSL. In case if NAC is configured for Non-SSL use the same port
