In this test scenario, you will use Centrify for SaaS to set up single sign-on for a sample online service leveraging your organization's Active Directory. You'll then see how end-users experience single sign-on via the MyCentrify user portal.
Note. For the first 30 days, you will have access to all product features. After 30 days, you can continue to use the service in Express mode, or you can request an upgrade to the Centrify User Suite, Saas Edition, which includes enterprise support.
The Centrify Cloud Proxy Server is a Windows service that connects your Active Directory to the Centrify Cloud Service. It is the first step in starting to evaluate and use Centrify's Mobile Security Management Solution or Centrify for SaaS. Be sure to make a note of your Customer ID, which you will need in order to log in to the Centrify Cloud Manager admin console.
For detailed instructions on this step and the step below: See "Adding a web app" in the Evaluation Guide.
Go to https://cloud.centrify.com/manage and enter your customer ID and Active Directory username and password. Cloud Manager displays the Apps page. For the sake of demonstration, we'll add an app allowing one-click single sign-on to the centrify.com website. You already have a centrify.com account from registering for the Centrify Cloud Service, so you'll be able to exercise single sign-on with this app in the next step.
Click Add Apps. Right-click on Centrify.com, and select Modify. For the Map to User Accounts setting, click Prompt the user for their username. In the left pane, click User Access, select Everybody and then select Automatic Install. Click Save Changes.
Now you will see how an end-user experiences the MyCentrify User Portal. Go to https://cloud.centrify.com/my. If you have configured your portal for silent authentication, it will open to the MyApps section without asking you to log in. Otherwise, login with your Active Directory credentials and Customer ID.>
Click the Centrify app. It opens a separate browser window. On the first visit, you will need to enter the email address and password you used to register for the Cloud Service. Your browser should take you to the Account Settings page of this site. Close that window.
Ensure you are logged out of www.centrify.com (click here to logout now). From the MyCentrify User Portal, click the Centrify app again. You should get straight into the Account Settings page without being challenged to authenticate.
