(SaaS Option) Configure SSO for Timesheet Integration with Rally
You can configure SSO for the timesheet integration in a SaaS environment. Implementing SSO allows the users (for example, developers or product owners) between the two products to access either application without having to log in a second time.
For example, Mike, a product owner logs into Rally to review the product backlog and wants to record time while remaining in this application. Mike wants to access the My Timesheets feature in
Claritywithout having to log in again.
Users that have logins for both Rally and
Clarityare able to log in to either application using SSO.
If you are using SSO to authenticate to
Clarity, contact your SSO team for the custom URL that they use to access
Clarityin a SaaS environment. The following is an example of a custom URL:
The first part of the URL takes you to your identity provider (IdP) for authentication:
After authentication is complete, the end part of the URL tells you where to land in
Clarity(for example, the homepage):
Use the above custom URL to first configure the Referrer URL in
Clarityand then the Timesheet Path in Rally.
