Fixed In Version: vt2.2
Doc Type: Technology Preview
Doc Text:
With this update, the engine can now integrate with Apache authentication, for example mod_auth_kerb, to accept users already authenticated by Apache and enable single sign-on to the User and Administration Portals. Note that this feature conflicts with the password delegation feature in 3.4 (also known as the single sign-on to virtual machine feature) as the engine does not have access to user passwords anymore, the password cannot be delegated to virtual machines. Also note that when this feature is used, the sign out button in the User Portal and Administration Portal will not work. The user will remain logged in even after clicking the sign out button. To sign out, the user needs to sign out from the single sign-on provider. For more information on configuring this feature, see the ovirt-engine-extension-aaa-ldap package documentation[1].

Comment 1 Alon Bar-Lev 2014-06-27 12:48:52 UTC
Core limitation: SSO into virtual machine will not work, as password is unknown to engine.
