SSO available options?


After doing some research on the various types of SSO available in XI R2, I still have some confusion as to what is an option for us.

We have a .NET application we're looking to integrate BOXI reports in through URL reporting (no signon, otherwise we'd just use standard openDoc). I think the fact that we use Enterprise authentication in our BOXI environment rules out AD / NT SSO, leaving us with the option of implementing Trusted Authentication. Since our application login IDs don't match our BOXI Enterprise IDs, I think this rules out TA as a solution as well!

Are there any SSO options I'm overlooking? At this point I'm thinking the only thing that will work is a custom solution using a lookup table to map our application IDs <-> BOXI IDs, and this isn't really a route I want to go.

Any help appreciated - thanks......

    Are there no corporate directories (AD/LDAP) that you can make use of instead of using enterprise ID's? There is no way to identify a remote user with an enterprise ID unless you used something like trusted authentication query_string (username in the URL)

    If you have any type of 3rd party directory, or portal that has the capability of presenting a username to BO then you can use trusted authentication, you can also rename the enterprise ID's to allow them to match, but by itself there is no way to identify a BO enterprise user except by manually logging in.

      Thanks for your response - this is what I suspected. I am going to try to go the AD authentication route if possible, and if not will syncronize our application user IDs and move forward with a TA configuration.
