Configuring single sign-on authentication for the BlackBerry Administration Service and BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager

If you configure the BlackBerry® Administration Service to support Microsoft® Active Directory® authentication, you can turn on single sign-on authentication. Single sign-on authentication permits you to access the BlackBerry Administration Service and BlackBerry device users to access the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager without requiring you and or the users to type a Microsoft Active Directory user name and password. By default, if you log in to the BlackBerry Administration Service or users log in to the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager using Microsoft Active Directory authentication, the browser prompts you or the users to type a Microsoft Active Directory user name and password. If you turn on single sign-on authentication, and you log in to a computer using a Microsoft Active Directory account, you can bypass the login screen and access the BlackBerry Administration Service and BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager directly. The BlackBerry Monitoring Service does not support single sign-on authentication.

Before you turn on single sign-on, you must configure constrained delegation for the Microsoft Active Directory account for the BlackBerry Administration Service.
