Reality Portal: How we combined Portal for ArcGIS, SSO, and Active Directory
At RICK we were presented with the challenge of tying multiple applications into a seamless experience for our users. We achieved our goal by utilizing AWS, a Single-Sign-On (SSO) solution & AD to create our Reality Portal. The Reality Portal was designed to provide a platform for the delivery of 3D Point Clouds, GIS data, 360¬∞ photographs & raw data all within a SSO platform to allow for a seamless transition between applications. Using SSO allows users to login once & removes the burden of having to login for each application. In this talk the technical requirements & challenges will be discussed in great detail. Central to our solution is the Portal for ArcGIS which is the backbone for hosting services . The Portal allows users to navigate to the correct location & serves as a gateway to launch the correct space from the attached applications. The talk will focus on how Portal for ArcGIS was deployed in AWS, federate to ArcGIS Server Server & integrated with AD & SSO.
