Understanding Cisco WebEx Connect integration with the Cisco WebEx application

You can enable integration between Cisco WebEx Connect and the Cisco WebEx application to simplify user administration and user experience. This integration is available at two levels: Tightly Coupled and Loosely Coupled. Administrators need to select the appropriate level of integration based on their requirements and the specific deployment scenario involved. The following table lists major features and differences between the two levels of integration.

 

Tightly Coupled Integration

Loosely Coupled Integration

All Cisco WebEx Meeting application users are required to have a Cisco WebEx Connect account. Provides the "Click-to-meeting" experience to users with no additional settings

Provides the "Click-to-meeting" experience to users with no additional settings

Provides a Single point of User Provisioning, User Password Management, and User Administration

Cisco WebEx Connect and Cisco WebEx Meeting application are managed as independent services. Not all Cisco WebEx Connect users need to have a Cisco WebEx application account and vice-versa.

Enables use of just one set of sign in credentials across both Cisco WebEx Connect and the Cisco WebEx application

Users can continue to use their Cisco WebEx application sign in credentials for signing into the Cisco WebEx web site.

In general, Tightly Coupled Integration is recommended for enterprises that have not deployed a single sign-on system. Loosely Coupled Integration is recommended for enterprises that have deployed a single sign-on system. However, you can enable the Loosely Coupled Integration even for enterprises that have not deployed a single sign-on system. For detailed information about each level of integration, see:

Both Tightly Coupled and Loosely Coupled levels involve different scenarios in the integration process and can vary accordingly.

 

Note: Tightly and Loosely Coupled Integration applies if your Cisco WebEx Messenger organization supports an existing Cisco WebEx Meeting Center site for starting a WebEx meeting from the client.
