Configuring Custom Authentication

App Portal 2021 R1

To implement a custom single sign-on authentication type, you would need to write a custom page (.aspx) to redirect to. App Portal is installed with a boilerplate custom page named CustomSignon.aspx, which your services team can customize for your organization. This file can be found in the following location:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Flexera Software\App Portal\Web\CustomSignon.aspx

To configure custom authentication, perform the following steps.

To configure custom authentication:

1. Obtain the boilerplate custom page installed with App Portal:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Flexera Software\App Portal\Web\CustomSignon.aspx

2. Customize the SSL page for your organization.
3. Launch App Portal and open the Site Management > Settings > Single Sign-On view.
4. From the Single sign-on type list, select Custom.
