Overview : Running the application : Single sign-on

Single sign-on

Progress Software Corporation recommends that each server the application accesses be protected with a user ID and password. To simplify access to servers, multiple servers might be protected by the same user ID and password. To facilitate single sign-on for the end user eliminates the need for the end user to enter their logon information multiple times, WebClient caches authentication information that the end user enters, and gives the application access to this cache.
If the end user so chooses, WebClient maintains the authentication cache across end user sessions. This is called persistent caching. The application deployer can disable persistent caching, and the end user can clear the persistent cache. For more information, see the Implementing single sign-on.
