Specifying security settings

The Partner Delegated Authentication screen enables you to specify options for integrating a Cisco WebEx certified Delegation Authentication partner Organization with your Cisco WebEx Messenger Organization. This option is available only when a pre-configured correlation is setup via a Super Administrator configuration. Integrating a partner Organization simply means you allow the partner Organization to authenticate with your Cisco WebEx Messenger Organization as a Member, an Organization Administrator, or both. When such an authentication is enabled, users using applications developed by these Cisco WebEx certified partner Organizations can access Cisco WebEx Messenger without the need to use a separate set of credentials.

For example, acme.com is a Cisco WebEx Messenger Organization that has enabled integration with Verizon Communications, a Cisco WebEx Messenger certified partner. Users of acme.com can authenticate to an application offered by Verizon Communications and access Cisco WebEx Messenger without having to enter different sign in credentials.

If you grant Organization Administrator access, your partner Organization is able to perform administrative tasks on your Cisco WebEx Messenger Organization and the partner Organization. You can enable partner Organization integration with more than one partner Organization.

You can disable the partner Organization integration at any time.

To enable partner organization integration:

  1. Sign in to the Cisco WebEx Messenger Administration Tool.
  2. Select the Configuration tab and Security Settings screen.
  3. Under SSO Related Options, select Partner Delegated Authentication to display the dialog for an administrator whose organization is not “Delegated Authentication”.

     

    Note: The SSO Related Options link display is set by the super administrator.

  4. Select Member or Org Admin as the applicable level of access to permit for each partner Organization. If you select Organization Administrator, Member is selected by default.

    The NameID selection should match the identifier for your organization in Cisco WebEx Messenger. For example, if your organization is authenticated based on “EmployeeID”, your Delegated Authentication Partner must use “EmployeeID” to federate your user account. The available selections are “UserName”, “Email”, and “EmployeeID”.

  5. Select Save to display a confirmation message.
  6. Select Grant Partner Access to save the partner Organization integration settings.
