Host Authentication Settings

Installation Key

The installation key is a token used to allow SSO connections to Orchestrator for integrated applications.

  1. Log in to the Management portal as a system administrator.
  2. Select Security and then select the Authentication Settings tab.
    Note: In the old Admin experience, go to Accounts & Groups instead of Security.

    The current installation key is displayed and you can click the Copy icon to copy it to your clipboard:



  3. (Optional) To generate a new installation key, click Generate new.

    A success message appears from the top right indicating that a new key was generated.

External Providers

Orchestrator allows you to configure an external identity provider to control how your users sign in. The following table provides an overview of the different host-level external providers available.

Follow the instructions applicable for the external provider you want to use, as indicated below:

Note:

The instructions indicated in the below table are for a new installation or if you are configuring one of the external providers for the first time.

If you upgraded Orchestrator and were already using one or more of the external providers listed below, the configuration is migrated, but you might need to perform some re-configuration tasks. If so, follow the instructions in Re-configuring authentication after upgrade instead.

External Provider Integration

Authentication

Directory Search

User Provisioning

Users can use SSO with Windows Authentication using the Kerberos protocol

Administrators can search for users from the Active Directory

Users must be assigned a role in the Orchestrator tenant. Active Directory users and groups can be assigned a role via directory search.

Users can use SSO with Azure AD using the OpenID Connect protocol

Not supported

Users must be manually provisioned into the Orchestrator tenant with an email address matching their Azure AD account.

Users can use SSO with Google using the OpenID Connect protocol

Not supported

Users must be manually provisioned into the Orchestrator tenant with an email address matching their Google account.

Users can use SSO with any Identity Provider that supports SAML

Not supported

Users must be manually provisioned into the Orchestrator tenant with a username matching their SAML account.

Note: Differences between integrating Azure AD at host-level and organization-level: The host-level Azure AD external identity provider only enables SSO functionality. The organization-level Azure AD integration enables SSO, directory search, and automatic user provisioning.

Security

To configure security options for your Orchestrator installation, go to Admin > Users > Authentication Settings and edit the options as needed.

The settings you specify here, at the host level, are inherited by all organizations in your installation as default, but organization administrators can overwrite these settings as needed at the level of the individual organization.
