    Question regarding Delphix with SSO login: 

    Currently we are using Delphix login (without SSO) and calling number of Delphix rest APIs. As a company standard, we have to use SSO to login to Delphix.

    1. Could anybody please suggest what will be the impact on Rest API Calls, what change will be needed there.

    2. Any information on how to (Steps) enable SSO on Delphix.


    Delphix 5.0.2.3, Rest API Version , Delphix API Version 1.7.0


    Thanks in Advance

    Hi, Generally speaking, No impact nor restriction to use the API with sso enabled applications. At the moment delphix doesn't support directly the sso configuration, but you can workaround that using a reversproxy with sso enabled in front of you delphix engine. Regards, Mouhssine

    Hi Amit, It depends on what sso solution you have in place or you plan to deploy. For education and sample perpose an example of setting sso with apache and AD https://active-directory-wp.com/docs/Networking/Single_Sign_On/Kerberos_SSO_with_Apache_on_Linux.html The rest is matter of configuring the sso solution with an apache with proxy module enabled and redirecting the proxy url to the engine URL. Example on how to setup an apache revers proxy : https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-apache-http-server-as-reverse-proxy-using-mod_proxy-extension Hope this help Regards, Mouhssine
