How to make Web Service calls when Ephesoft is configured with SSO


In 2019.2 and below, call to rest APIs works with basic authentication only and below steps needs to be followed for the same:

  1. Uncomment the security-constraint only for url-pattern /rest/* in web.xml.
  2. Uncomment the realm for LDAP/AD in server.xml as required.
  3. Skip the rest url from applicationContext-security.xml by adding <security:http pattern=”/rest/**” security=”none” />. This will remove the security from rest services and the request will not be sent to IDP for authentication and authorization.
