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.

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

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 :

Hope this help
