Table 1 is a summary of which Metasys system application User Interfaces support Active Directory logins and the SSO capability. If the application supports Active Directory logins, then the Metasys system can be configured to use your existing IT Active Directory Service infrastructure for authentication purposes. If the application supports SSO, then you can log in to multiple, secured applications without reentering the same user name and password.

1 If you are using Metasys Advanced Reporting System UI on an ADX/ODS, you still can use the SSO capability to log in to the ADX Site Management Portal UI. For example, if you have an ADX/ODS with the Metasys Advanced Reporting System, you can use SSO to log in to the ADX Site Management Portal UI, but you must enter your Metasys system user name and password pair to log in to the reporting system.
2 The engine Site Management Portal UI does not support authentication with Active Directory service. If you have an ADS/ADX/OAS/ODS Site Director, however, you can log in to the ADS/ADX/OAS/ODS Site Management Portal UI using SSO and access system information for the entire site, including details on the engine.
