Configuration of inWebo Secure Ssite

To allow inWebo authentication on your OpenAM server page, you must add a new Web Service type secure site. To do so:

  • go to inWebo administration console→Secure Sites
  • add a new secure site of type Web Services connector

The format of the called URL should be:

http(s)://{OPENAM_HOST}/openam/UI/Login //if you are using the openAM UI
http(s)://{OPENAM_HOST}/openam/XUI //if you are using the openAM XUI

The default authentication form values are:

  • Form name: Login
  • Login field name: idToken1
  • Password field name: idToken2

To configure inWebo authentication in OpenAM:

  • go to OpenAM Admin console and log in as 'amadmin'
  • navigate to {REALM}→Authentification→Modules
  • add new module with inWebo Authentication Type

To test the configuration, go to:

http(s)://{OPENAM_HOST}/openam/UI/Login?module=inWeboTest //if you are using the openAM UI
http(s)://{OPENAM_HOST}/openam/XUI/#login/&module=inWeboTest //if you are using the openAM XUI

How to disable XUI

To disable XUI:

  • go to OpenAM Admin console and log in as 'amadmin'
