It's by design... (Don't you just love those excuses, but really it is)
I'm not sure about the Java client, but with the Web/PN client you have to
add EnableSSONThruICAFile=Yes to the [WFClient] Section of the user's
AppSrv.ini file.  This will allow SSON to both the Web Interface portal and
the GINA.

As far as customizing the Java client,  you should be able to turn off the
Connection Center in the Access Suite Console by deselecting the option when
you configure client distribution.

Subject: [THIN] WI 4 and SSO w / and w/out passthru and pushed Java client?


I've been trying to understand this, but it's not making any sense to me
- using WI 4.0, with a pushed Java client (latest 9.4).

So if you configure WI to use pass-thru authentication, it works just
peachy, and the WI interface page, correctly ascertains the credentials
and logs in, presents the apps, yet selecting any app causes the CPS
login dialog to require filling in.

If you configure WI to allow explicit as well as pass-thru, and then
login using explicit credentials, with the same pushed Java client, and
single sign-on works just fine, and the CPS login for each published app
is silently dealt with.

Why can't you have your cake and eat it? Why can't you configure WI to
use pass-thru, and have the CPS logins silently dealt with? It's clearly
not a capability thing, as the second scenario the only difference is
that the credentials have been prompted from WI, as opposed to grabbed
from the environment.

Anyone know? And if so, whilst you're at it being wizard-y, is there an
easy way to turn off the connection centre for the Java client when
using WI?

Cheers

Neil
