An application participates in single sign-on (SSO) in an authority role or listener role.
In the authority role, the application provides the original login for a user and sends login information to other SSO listener applications. In the listener role, the application receives login information through SSO from the authority application.
The Ricoh ESA Unified Client can function in the authority role for the following authentication modes:
- Output Manager Authentication with Device Access Control
- OM Authentication
- Device Authentication.
As the authority, the Ricoh ESA Unified Client notifies its listeners for login and logout events.
The Ricoh ESA Unified Client can function in the listener role for the following authentication modes:
- External AAA Provider
As a listener, the Ricoh ESA Unified Client shows a not-logged-in message rather than a login screen when no user is logged in.
