Pass Through Authentication
You can enable single sign-on for SupportCenter Plus to directly authenticate support reps' login credentials. Thus the support reps need not log in again to access SupportCenter Plus.
SupportCenter Plus Pass-through Authentication uses NTLMV2 which provides better security and validates the credentials using NETLOGON service.
To enable single sign-on,
Go to Admin >> Users >> Active Directory. If you have configured multiple portals, go to Global Settings >> User Management >> Active Directory.
Under Active Directory Authentication, select the Enable Active Directory Authentication checkbox and the Enable Pass Through Authentication (Single Sign-On) checkbox.
