Trying to use SSO in Spark can be an exercise in frustration
click Advanced, go to the SSO tab.
Turn on “Use SSO”
Fill in the server name
BUG: Note that the Login button is now disabled
- Close Spark.
Examine the spark.properties file.
BUG: Note the lack of important options, such as “server”, which had been filled in.
- Launch Spark again
BUG: Note that it attempts to login automatically, despite that option never being selected and despite login being impossible due to the lack of a server option.
BUG: Note that SSO is now disabled.
BUG: Note that the “Server” field is blank again.
In order to use SSO in spark you must login successfully once with spark or manually set the preferences in the spark.properties file.
Sounds like a catch-22. I must log in before I can log in?
It’s certainly a bug in any case.
Would it be better as separate bugs, though?
1: Login button is disabled after turning on SSO and typing in the server field
Server name isn’t stored until a successful login
autologin preference is stored as on even though the user interface indicates that it is off.
3a. autologin is attempted even when requisite information is not available
- SSO is turned off when an SSO login fails.
I guess they’re all relatively small bugs though, so perhaps it’s fine to combine them…Dunno how Jive prefers to handle such things.
