uCMDB 11X SSO Configuration

SSO configuration talks about supporting standalone Tomcat 5.0.28 and 5.5.20. Does it mean that i would have to install a seperate Tomcat for the SSO to work. uCMDB 11X uses Jetty, how do i reconfigure uCMDB to use Apache as a web front end. Any suggestions \ideas are welcome. 

The actual requirement that is driving this effort is to configure uCMDB to use enterprise sso via Oracle Access manager. OAM comes with an apache plugin and i will be able to attach the usercn to the header while sending the login request to uCMDB. Trying to find out how do i configure uCMDB behind an Apache. Do i set it up as a reverse proxy ..., The documents only talk about configuring CMS UI behing IIS or Apache, I dont see any reference interms of configuring the uCMDB application behind IIS or Apache. Let me know your thoughts. I am installing 2018.11 and CMS UI and uCMDB app are on the same server.

Re: uCMDB 11X SSO Configuration

The document talks about configuring Tomcat to support SSO and it refers to the scenario when you are using Tomcat to deploy the UCMDB Browser or New UI in a standalone configuration outside of Jetty.

I never encountered the term "Oracle Access manager" and I doubt that we support it.

Re: uCMDB 11X SSO Configuration

Bougdan,

 Thanks for the reply, Does it mean that i can only install the CMS UI to work with Apache or IIS and not the application. if you refer to the SSO requirements under https://docs.microfocus.com/itom/Universal_CMDB:2018.11/hardening/hard_lwsso_reqs teh docuemnt says it supports with a standalone tomcat. If so how do i make uCMDB application to use Apache as a front tier instead of Jetty or along with Jetty

Re: uCMDB 11X SSO Configuration

No. We have a strict Support Matrix for a good reason.

The embedded New UI is written differently for the Jetty web server compared to the Tomcat one.
it's not written for anything else.

Bogdan,

 I want to put the ucmdb app behind the tomcat not just the browser or CMS UI.

Re: uCMDB 11X SSO Configuration

No, we don't Support runing UCMDB in Tomcat. Only the New UI or legacy Browser.

Re: uCMDB 11X SSO Configuration

Bogdan ,

 How about configuring it behind an Apache reverse proxy. In that case i would be able to install the plugin on the apache along and attach the header when i redirect. request to uCMDB Will that work.

Re: uCMDB 11X SSO Configuration

We do support using Apache as a reverse proxy for UCMDB. Actually we use it on OMi or BSM if I remember correctly.
I never used Apache reverse proxy with custom SSO. Theoretically it should work. I can't find a clear document which should state that we support it.

Kind regards,
