ALE Learnset Manager Installation and Upgrade Guide

ALE Learnset Manager

ALE Learnset Manager supports two kinds of authentication:

  • An LDAP server can be used to authenticate users.
  • An internal user account can be used.
Note: Password complexity is not enforced with internal users.

Both approaches can be combined with support for Single Sign-On (SSO). When configuring SSO, it is expected that the SSO provider protects the access to the web application and puts the name of the authenticated user into an HTTP header field.

To support user authentication via an SSO provider, complete these steps:

  1. In the SSO Header field, enter the name of the HTTP header field that the SSO provider uses to submit the name of the authenticated user.
  2. Configure your SSO provider so that the following paths within the web application are protected:
    • /packages/framework-core/sso
    • /service/session/
  3. Click > to proceed, setting up details for the selected authentication type.
