Integrating Allegra with Single Sign On¶
Single Sign On (SSO) systems allow users to authenticate themselves once for many applications, relieving them from having to log into each application separately.
Allegra supports SSO in three ways:
Allegra accepts authentication forwarded to it by a CAS based SSO system
Allegra provides support to easily set up an Apereo CAS (https://www.apereo.org/projects/cas) SSO system, a tried and tested Open Source SSO product.
Allegra can optionally provide user and group management including self-serve password reset facilities together with an LDAP server like Microsoft Active Directory (AD) or OpenLDAP.
With Allegra based SSO you get
User friendly user and group management
Self-serve reset password support
Direct access from Allegra to Jenkins, Gitlab, Sonar, any PHP based application, and many other systems supporting the CAS protocols.
