SiteMinder Identity Service

After a developer configures a SiteMinder instance in Volt MX Foundry Console, the SiteMinder instance handles authentication and authorization of users. When a SiteMinder user logs in Volt MX Foundry app, the system directs the user to the SiteMinder log-in page. After a SiteMinder user logs into the SiteMinder instance, the user will be redirected to Volt MX Foundry Console. Volt MX Foundry auth service will verify whether SiteMinder headers and cookies exist before granting access to Volt MX Foundry design-time components. Volt MX Foundry components include the Volt MX Foundry Console, Volt MX Foundry Engagement, Volt MX Foundry Sync, and Volt MX Foundry Integration Server.

Note: SiteMinder Identity service support is available only for Volt MX Foundry On-premises.
