To enable Account Association in the Single Sign-on Plug-in

Apr 13, 2011

When logging on to the domain hosting the Credential Synchronization Module, users do not need to perform any action to enable Account Association. These accounts act as a central repository for each user’s credential information.

When logging on to other domains, users have two ways to enable Account Association, depending on the version of the Single Sign-on Plug-in they are using:
  • For this version of the Single Sign-on Plug-in, users access the Account Association tool as a published application. You publish the Account Association tool and inform users how to access and use it.
  • For the Single Sign-on Plug-in versions 4.8 and earlier, users will now see an Account Association option under the Tools menu in the plug-in software's Logon Manager. Users choose this option to enable Account Association.
  1. Depending on plug-in version, users access the Account Association tool as a published application or select Tools > Account Association from the Logon Manager. The Account Association dialog box appears.
  2. Users select Enable Account Association.
    Note: If you did not provide the service address that is hosting the Credential Synchronization Module, users must type it in the text field. If the field is unavailable, you already provided this service address and users cannot type in this field.
  3. Users click OK. The Authenticate for Account Association dialog box appears.
  4. Users type the username and password for the user's associated Windows account. If the domain where the Credential Synchronization Module is installed is not shown, users type it in the Domain field.
    Note: If you provided the domain name, users cannot type text in this field.
  5. Users click OK. Account Association is now enabled. The user’s credentials are synchronized whenever plug-in software synchronization occurs.
