Pemari Integrated Windows Authentication | Clarity PPM
Pemari’s IWA filter for Clarity PPM enables Windows Integrated Authentication, no username/password prompt, to the Clarity PPM web application, authenticating the user based on their Windows logon credentials using Kerberos or optionally NTLM.
The IWA Filter does not need a separate server nor a particular page to be accessed first to enable sign on, you can access any page in Clarity PPM and the IWA filter will authenticate the user.
No, deep linking is supported so links, in emails, saved as a favourite in a browser, or from other websites will work.
Yes, the SSO filter allows a URL to be used for signing on to Clarity PPM as the specified user rather than using the user’s Windows credentials. If you wish to use this we would recommend that the server is SSL enabled.
Yes and No.
If you launch OWB or MSP from the link in Clarity PPM then this will sign you on silently, but on session timeout you will again be prompted to enter a password.
However, if you start OWB or MSP then logon to Clarity PPM from those tools you will still be prompted for a user and password.
This is due to the client not supporting SSO rather than a server limitation. It is recommended that Clarity PPM is LDAP enabled so that the user can use their Windows credentials to logon from these tools.
Yes it is recommended that you do so.
Yes, but only if you have a means of mapping the user’s Windows user name to their Clarity PPM username, if so then a custom user mapping plugin can be written to perform the mapping. We publish how to do this in the documentation and also provide a simple example. Alternatively you can engage us to write a mapping function for you.
Yes, the filter supports Kerberos and NTLMv2 on both Windows servers and Linux servers.
No kerberos is always the default scheme. NTLM support can be added if required.
With Pemari’s expert PPM skills, experience of the existing best practice across many industries, and proven deployment capabilities we are confident that the Trust will be able to adhere to its future governance goals and so successfully deliver the changes required for its strategic objectives.
We found the Pemari guys helpful and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend them for future Clarity PPM work.
I would have no hesitation in recommending them for Broadcom Clarity PPM engagements in the future.
We’ve been using Pemari since 2007 on numerous different projects and would highly recommend them for their knowledge and experience in Clarity PPM
Throughout the engagement Pemari consistently demonstrated an in depth understanding of the Clarity product, ABN AMRO's business needs and the most effective way to marry the two.
We hired Pemari to build a reusable project interface between our old legacy system and Clarity PPM. The interface has dramatically reduced the amount of time it takes to get new projects started and has allowed resources to be reassigned to other more beneficial activities.
We found Pemari able to quickly grasp the needs of the business at a range of levels and understand how, as a government organisation, how those needs varied from a commercial environment.
We were facing a performance issue of the system whenever the Clarity PPM time slices rolled over. Our solution was to use the Pemari Time Slicer. We have improved performance of reports and dashboards along with improved accuracy in the data.
