Configurations management enables you to configure the Service Management Automation suite settings.
Important The suite takes several minutes to restart after you change the configurations.
Lightweight Single Sign-On (LW-SSO) is a Micro Focus solution that enables a user to log on to one Micro Focus application and gain access to other Micro Focus applications without being prompted for login credentials. The applications that participate in LW-SSO trust the initial authentication and require no re-authentication when the user is moving from one application to another. LW-SSO shares between the applications a token that is signed with the same encryption key that must be configured in each application. With LW-SSO, once users are logged in to the Service Management Automation suite, they can access their authorized suite capabilities without re-login.
To configure LW-SSO in suite, complete the following settings.
Email service tab
