Issue/Introduction

Description:

CA does not provide a specific BOXI agent for SSO, however there is solutions available.

Solution:

Solution 1:-

BOXI comes with an integrated SiteMinder custom agent to provide easy integration. This is actually a 4.x compatible agent built using the SiteMinder SDK. For more details please review the Deployment Guide.

Solution 2:-

BOXI also supports Trusted Authentication. This requires BOXI user accounts to be the same as the SiteMinder account being passed in the specific header value. A standard SiteMinder Web Agent would protect the front end web server. For more details please review the Deployment Guide.

BOXI Deployment Guide can be found here: http://help.sap.com/businessobject/product_guides/boexir2/en/xir2_bip_deploy_en.pdf.

Important! Please note that these are not CA supplied or supported solutions. We can help troubleshoot the relevant SiteMinder logs, but support should be sought from SAP.
