    Default Configuring Pentaho with WebSEAL authentication

    Hi,

    I am trying to configure pentaho for SSO with WebSEAL authentication. Has anyone successfully configured this or is there a place where I can learn about configuring SSO for pentaho with systems other that CAS / SiteMinder/ MS active directory??

    P.S. I am still not a JAVA guy!

    Pentaho uses Spring Security so you should search on integrating Spring Security and WebSEAL. From some quick searching, it looks like Pre-Authentication is the way to go.

    Hi,
    I found a sample for siteminder in the given link where this
    <bean id="siteminderFilter"
    class="org.springframework.security.ui.preauth.header.RequestHeaderPreAuthenticatedProcessingFilter">
    bean has been added to the configuration.

    .. i assume applicationContext-spring-security.xml is the place to add a similar configuration for webseal also. Webseal sends the username in a http header called "iv-user"

    someone has successfully tried configuring spring with webseal here:
    http://forum.springsource.org/showth...yContextHolder

    so will be helpful if i get to know the exact files where i need to change the configuration in pentaho ( i'm assuming this change mentioned in the preauth link has to be done only in the applicationContext-spring-security.xml)

    P.S. I am still not a JAVA guy!

    You are correct. applicationContext-spring-security.xml is the file to edit.
