XTAM Federated Sign-In; Benefits and Configuration

XTAM provides a federated sign-in experience that can be deployed during or after installation. The benefits of the XTAM Federated Sign-In:

Pre-requisite: Make sure a non-self signed, well known and trusted SSL Certificate is deployed and working in your Windows or Unix host. During installation, you will define the URL that XTAM will use for web connectivity and this connection needs to be secured with a trusted web certificate.
While we recommend using a trusted SSL certificate in all deployments scenarios, if you have a self-signed certificate, please see this FAQ article for configuration options.

To Deploy XTAM Federated Sign-In Post Installation

1

Download the XTAM Federated Sign-In component to your XTAM host machine (XTAM Federated Sign-In Download)

When the download is complete, unpack the downloaded archive and copy its containing file cas.war to $XTAM_HOME/web/webapps.

3

Edit the file $XTAM_HOME/web/conf/catalina.properties and make the following modification:

3a

Set the property cas.managed.path to XTAM’s managed path (secured URI) so it will look something like this cas.managed.path=https://xtam.company.com:6443

Please take note of the port (:6443) in the above example. If you are using a port other than the default 6443, update this line to reflect the port number being used. If you are using a reverse proxy which is using port 443 then a possible, working value may be https://xtam.company.com

4

Download and then unpack the web archive located here

5

Copy the web.xml file to $XTAM_HOME/web/webapps/xtam/WEB-INF replacing the file which already exists. (Consider making a copy of the existing web.xml file in case of issues.)
