Directory Server Support for Trusted Auto-Login in Siebel Wireless

Trusted Auto-Login refers to automatic login of both the user name and password. When the Siebel Wireless Auto Login feature is enabled and a user attempts to log in to a Siebel Wireless application with a particular device for the first time, the user is requested to log in to the Siebel Wireless application using a standard Siebel user name and password.

If this initial login is successful, a second entry is created in the directory server to contain the Auto Login information for that user's particular device. This device entry in the directory server is used subsequently by the Auto Login feature to log in the user's device to Siebel Wireless applications.

Support for the Auto Login feature requires the use of external authentication through a Siebel Security Adapter. The Siebel-provided LDAP and ADSI Security Adapters should be configured to use the Adapter Define Username feature as described in this section.

The Siebel Wireless Auto Login feature requires the following parameters to be set as listed in each of the Siebel Wireless server configuration files for which Auto Login will be enabled. This information must be listed in the configuration file section appropriate to the security adapter you are using, that is [LDAP]:

An example of all entries required in the Wireless server configuration files to support Auto Login when using an LDAP security adapter is as follows:



DllName = sscfldap.dll (for windows (for UNIX)
ServerName = <>
Port = <server port no., e.g., 389>
BaseDN = "ou=People,"
SharedCredentialsDN =
UsernameAttributeType = Description
PasswordAttributeType = userPassword
CredentialsAttributeType = mail
RolesAttributeType = roles
SslDatabase =
ApplicationUser =
ApplicationPassword =
EncryptApplicationPassword = FALSE
EncryptCredentialsPassword = FALSE
SingleSignOn = FALSE
TrustToken =
UseAdapterUserName = TRUE
SiebelUsernameAttributeType = displayname
; UseRemoteConfig =

Additionally, directory server entries with the following attributes must be created for each Siebel Wireless user that will use the Auto Login feature:

Table 3.  Directory Server Entries
Attribute Name
<Siebel user name>
Email Address
username=<Siebel anonymous user name> password=<anonymous user's password>
<Siebel user name>
<Siebel user name>
<Siebel user password>

Each of these users must also be added to the Directory Administrators group.

Finally, for each server component representing a Siebel Wireless application for which Auto Login will be enabled, the following component parameter values must be set through the Siebel Server Administration > Components user interface:
