Home / Server is the main view of Ubisecure SSO Management. The home sub node Server represents the Ubisecure SSO Server object in the Ubisecure Directory.

The Site Manager main view differs from the view seen by System Administrator. Site Manager view is presented in Figure 1.

Figure 1: The view of Ubisecure SSO Management for a Site Manager

A Site Manager can manage only sites that the System Administrator or other Site Manager has delegated. There is no link to the methods configuration view from Home.

The System Administrator can see the following view (Figure 2).

In addition to the different Server view, there is a link to the following configuration views for the System Administrator:

  • Global Method Settings
  • Attribute Mappings
  • Directory User Mappings
  • Services
  • Logging

The following functions and configuration settings are available in Home/Server view:

  • Metadata: SAML 2.0
    Ubisecure SSO acts as both an Identity Provider and Service Provider in SAML. SAML 2.0 metadata contains information about public keys and endpoint addresses needed when Ubisecure SSO is communicating with SAML Service Providers. This is a link to a metadata file which contains the metadata that is exchanged with both Identity Providers and Service Providers.
  • Search
    Ubisecure Search is a utility for quickly finding Ubisecure Directory objects. Please see Session information page - SSO for more information.

  • Single Sign-On Session Timeout
    Specify the number of minutes of inactivity after which a user session times out. Click Update to update the value. After this timeout, re-authentication to the Web Applications is required for the end-user.

Please refer to the separate Timeout configuration - SSO page for more information. A value specified for Web Applications can override this setting. User session timeout value is determined by the smallest of the following values:

  • Ubisecure SSO timeout
    Timeout values of those Web Applications that have been used in the user session
  • Reset secret
    Resetting the server secret is recommended after the first installation and after each upgrade. The server must be restarted and all single sign-on sessions are terminated.
  • Log viewer
    Log Viewer is a utility to facilitate viewing of Ubisecure related log files. Please see the page for Log Viewer for more information.
