I'm evaluating Jira Service Desk, Confluence and Alfresco Community Edition as a combined system.
To ease the login procedure we want to use SSO, and Atlassian Crowd seems to work just fine for Jira Service Desk and Confluence. To connect Alfresco I have the possibility to setup a 'Generic Application' in Atlassian Crowd.
I found Configuring Alfresco Share to use an external SSO | Alfresco Documentation, and followed the steps there,
when the how-to asks me to set the external.authentication.proxyHeader I added this to /tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco-global.properties, and then restarted the Tomcat instance.
In Crowd I added ALFRESCO_ADMINISTRATORS as a group to be able to authenticate with Alfresco. I have users added to this group.
Unfortunately, I'm not yet able to login to Alfresco with the users added in Crowd.
Any help and tips are very much appreciated!
* Alfresco Community Edition version 5.1
* Atlassian Crowd version 2.10.1
The systems are hosted on a local CentOS-machine.
