Connector for dg hyparchive
Give the new connection a name here.
Provide the new connection with a description.
hyparchive Service URI / Registration Service URI/ Stream Service URI
The web service URLs are obtained from your hyparchive server installation. Normally these are created from the host name of the hyparchive server, the port and the name of the web service.
Access to the dg hyparchive web service normally ensues via SSL. Each URL must
therefore begin with "https://". In addition, the SSL certificate of the
hyparchive server needs to be imported into the Intrexx License Manager. There
is also the option to activate the services without a certificate, this is done
by deactivating the SSL certificate check.
The authentication methods, which the portal user will use to
access hyparchive, are defined in this area.
Windows user / password
Enter the corresponding username and password.
Kerberos - Integrated Windows Authentication (Single Sign-On)
User / Password
A Windows username and their password must be entered here for both
authentication methods. This user is needed for the web service authentication
when accessing from the Intrexx Portal Manager
(e.g. to read the stamp
definitions in hyparchive). If this user is also a registered hyparchive
user, then this user will also be used for accessing the metadata and
therefore needs to have the appropriate access permissions. If an internal
(i.e. within hyparchive) or varying Windows user is used for the Portal
Manager, this can be entered in the last section of the dialog.
The authentication method "Kerberos" allows you to
apply a Single Sign-On Authentication within Windows domains. The following
conditions must however be fulfilled:
- The Intrexx Portal Server must be run with the
Microsoft Internet Information Server
and be a member of a Windows domain.
- The Intrexx Portal Server must be configured for
Integrated Windows Authentication and the
user must be
imported from the active directory.
- A Service Principal Name must be
defined for the hyparchive dg connect WCF Server.
- Single Sign-On Authentication must be
active for the dg connect WCF Server.
More information is available in the
dg connect WCF documentation.
- There must be a corresponding Windows account user for every
Intrexx user, who should access hyparchive.
- The Integrated Windows Authentication
should be activated for the
If the conditions named above are fulfilled, then the Single Sign-On can be
activated. For this, a hyparchive
Username/Password will be needed to access
Service Principal Name
Enter the SPN of the hyparchive dg connect server here. This is usually
compiled in the following way:
"http/<hyparchive DNS Name>"
Whereby "<hyparchive DNS Name>" should be
replaced with the fully qualified DNS host name of the hyparchive web
service Server. The host name must be identical to the host name that
was entered for the URL. After the configuration is saved, the integrated
authentication will be automatically activated. When correctly configured,
Intrexx portal users will automatically be logged in when accessing
hyparchive files. Should problems occur while setting up Single Sign-On,
you can find additional instructions to help analyze problems with the
