Portal Agents and Authentication Strategies

Portal Agents can be configured to support different authentication strategies:

  • Simple Portal Agents. The external application does not require any authentication parameters.
  • Single Sign-On Portal Agents. The external application requires authentication parameters. Form-based Portal Agents send authentication parameters as part of the body portion of the HTTP request.

For more information about authentication, see Siebel Security Guide.
