We are managing web contents through CQ5(www.cq5.com). We have a separate website (www.3rdpartysite.com) that has an admin module. When an Admin login to this admin module(www.3rdpartysite.com), we want to do a Single Sign On to the CQ5 website(www.cq5.com) so that user can directly navigate to the external CQ5 site link and reach the dashboard (www.cq5.com/dashboard.jsp).
1. Is there an API/Webservice to achieve this?
2. Reference to API for Class and Method to achieve the SSO/Authenticate from third party site using the API
Will appreciate your help!
This is accomplished in CQ with Trusted Header authentication. There is quite a bit of documentation regarding this:
Basically what you do is either alter the request header to add the trusted authentication, add it as a cookie or pass it in as a query string parameter.
