Configuring single sign-on for the HCL Connections Mail Plug-in using LTPA

You can use single sign-on to create a secure environment between Connections and your HCL Domino® mail servers. This method cannot be used for Microsoft Exchange mail servers.

    1. In the WAS-root/AppServer/profiles/Dmgr01/config/cells/cell-name/LotusConnections-config directory, open the LotusConnections-config.xml file.
    2. After the versionStamp element, add the following code:
         <genericProperty name="">true</genericProperty>
         <genericProperty name="shindig.config.container.overrides">
               "gadgets.sso" : {
                  "cookieDomain" :   "",
                  "cookieNames" :   "LtpaToken,LtpaToken2,iwaSSL,iwaSSL2,Shimmer,ShimmerS"           
    3. For the cookieDomain property, enter all domains for Domino mail servers. Separate multiple domains with commas (,) and no spaces.
    4. Save and close the LotusConnections-config.xml file.
    5. Restart your Connections servers.
