How to enable Single Sign On in Power Monitoring Expert 9.0?

Published date: 20 December 2018

Product Line:
Power Monitoring Expert 9.0

Environment: 
Web Applications

Cause:
Power Monitoring Expert 9.0 now supports Active Directory, allowing users to log in using their Windows credentials. This feature can be used to access the PME web page using a Single Sign On method, which bypasses the login screen altogether. 

Resolution:
In order to enable Single Sign On, the user must first be added as a Windows User or be part of an Active Directory Group that has been added as a Windows Group in the PME User Manager. See Page 312 of the Power Monitoring Expert 9.0 System Guide for more information about setting up Windows Users and Groups in PME. FA358303

Once Windows Users are added into PME, verify they are able to login using their Windows credentials. 

To enable Single Sign On:

1. Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager. 
2. Expand the tree on the left hand side. Sites > Default Web Site > Web
3. In the main window, double click Authentication. 
4. Right Click on Forms Authentication and select Edit.
5. Change the Login URL from /SystemDataService/Auth to /SystemDataService/Auth/Auto?
6. Click Okay to close the Window. 
7. Restart IIS. 

Now when the user navigates to https://servername/Web they will bypass the login screen and automatically be logged into the PME Web page with their Windows account.
