SAS VA inside my portal with User Authentication

Hi Community,

 

How can I integrate SAS VA into my website with User Authentication, by using the credentials which will be passed to SAS VA from my website?

 

Please guide me in implementing this.

 

Thank You

Hi there,

 

I personally think this functionality is not supported officially by SAS, but I would recommend you to double-check with SAS Technical Support.

 

But what you can do, is to enable web authentication, and ensure that your website's database creates a readable dump of your users and passwords for the SAS Web Authentication https://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/bimtag/69826/HTML/default/viewer.htm#n1bhp608f0hsoen10i...

Hi @JuanS_OCS,

 

Is there any way where we can pass the username and password from the url.

Ex: http://mysas.com/SASVisualAnalyticsHub/index.jsp?username=xyz&password=123

I honestly don;t know if it is possible, but I would definetely not do that, even if it is possible, unless you want to open a huge security breach at your company, and I feel confident you don't.

For security reasons, SAS does not provide parameters to pass credentials via a URL.

If you use Integrated Windows Authentication with VA (single signon) then you can avoid the need to pass credentials to VA.

It looks like your VA mid-tier server needs to be running Windows to do IWA if you are using VA 7.3 (page 89 in following link now corrected):

  

http://support.sas.com/documentation/onlinedoc/va/7.3/en/vaicg.pdf

 

Your metadata and VA App server can be Linux.

 

Confirmation from Linux-experienced gurus would be appreciated!

Sorry about that - please confirm it is the right install guide for you.

 

If not start at the SAS VA documentation page: http://support.sas.com/documentation/onlinedoc/va/index.html#viya81

 

Then navigate to the correct documentation. Smiley Happy

Hi @balraj,

If you are on a linux box, best way to get single signon is to implement SAML authentication through Shibboleth.

Following link can help you in that - https://support.sas.com/resources/papers/proceedings15/SAS1385-2015.pdf

 

Also Following links should help you to embade VA reports in iFrames:

Hope this helps you!

Anirban
