Information for System Administrators

This page provides important information and resources to assist System Administrators in preparation for the WebSSO (Open AM) upgrade.

How to Prepare

Your help is needed to identify any applications or websites using Web SSO. An application inventory/implementation schedule is included in the WebSSO Documentation folder on Box.

If you use an agent on your application or website, with or without a policy, and it is not on this list, please email  Lisa Roberts Senior Systems Analyst, Identity Services, Northwestern Information Technology.

Additionally, if you utilize an API/agentless connection to OpenAM, send an email to Lisa Roberts with a list of web applications that will use API to authenticate.

Connection Options

All websites that currently utilize single sign-on will need to coordinate with the upgrade using one of four connection options.

SSO Connection Options


A list of agentless samples in multiple languages (PHP, Java, etc.), as well as documentation for both agentless and agented upgrade options are provided in Box. There you can access, schedules, project overviews which will be updated as new information becomes available. WebSSO Documentation
