Sun OpenSSO Enterprise 8.0 Deployment Planning Guide

Configuring OpenSSO Enterprise to Act as a Service Provider

This use case requires that the ADFS server in the Company B domain be configured to recognize the Company A OpenSSO Enterprise endpoint as a Resource Partner. The Company B ADFS server must be recognized as a valid Identity Provider in a circle of trust that includes the Company A OpenSSO Enterprise server as a Service Provider.

In the OpenSSO Enterprise environment:

Use the ADFS snap-in to create a new Resource Partner. The new Resource Partner must be defined using the proper name and endpoint URL.

In the ADFS-based environment:

This configuration currently works only if a user account with the same UPN is created in both the ADFS domain and the OpenSSO Enterprise server. This is a major constraint.
