Remote Application Server : Setting up Single-Sign-ON

3 users found this article helpful

Parallels Client for Windows comes with its own SSO component that you can install and use to sign in to Parallels RAS. However, if you already use a third-party credential provider component on your Windows computers, you need to configure Parallels RAS and Parallels Client to use that component instead.

Note: In order to use a third-party component, you must still install Parallels SSO component on Windows computers. After you complete the configuration steps described below, the Parallels SSO component will be used by Parallels Client as a wrapper over the credentials provider component that you use.

To specify a third-party component, select the Force to wrap third party credential provider component option and specify the component's GUID in the provided field. You can obtain the GUID in Parallels Client as follows:

  1. Install Parallels Client on a computer that has the third-party component installed.
  2. In Parallels Client, navigating to Tools > Options > Single Sign-On(tab page).
  3. Select the "Force to wrap..." option and then select your provider in the drop-down list.
  4. Click the Copy GUID to Clipboard button to obtain the component's GUID.

You will also need to specify the component's GUID when setting up an invitation email in the RAS Console. To do so:

  1. In the RAS Console, navigate to Administration > Send Invitations.
  2. Click the Advanced button. In the dialog that opens, select the "Force to wrap..." option and specify the GUID of the component.

After the policies are applied on Windows computers, Parallels Client will be automatically configured to use the specified third-party credentials provider.
