Hello,

You do need a SAML 2.0 capable source in order to implement SSO. It does not have to be ADFS but in your case that would be the most fastest and most affordable solution. Without ADFS you can still use your AD credentials for SMAX login but not SSO.

ADFS does not cost anything (other than the server license of course) and can be set up less than 10 minutes.

Hello,

At least with ADFS the existing documentation works very well. If you are trying to implement SSO against Azure AD then Micro Focus does not offer any documentation, this is left for the customers to figure out. Do you have some specific problems / questions regarding SSO?

Hello @Mooseman actually our client don´t have ADFS enabled in their environment, but the documentation always make reference that AFDS is mandatory for enable SSO with SMAx.

No, ADFS is not mandatory, you can use any SAML 2.0 capable source of your flavour. SMAX does not care what you use but the claims must be set correctly, otherwise you are not able to login. Do you have some specific technology in mind that you would like to use?

We are planning to use MS Active Directory 2008 with Kerberos. Do you recomend us some instructions or links to review?

Hello,

As far as I know, Kerberos is not supported. In order to have SSO with AD, you need to use ADFS.

When a standalone postgres server is used that hosts the ~half-a-dozend SMAX postgres DBs one must setup SSL for each of them. - A pain ...

Finally we implement ADFS and SMAx SSO with SAML is 100% OK.
