How do I set up "no-password" sign in for IdentityNow?

How do I set up "no-password" sign in for IdentityNow?

"No-password" sign in refers to the fact that, when an administrator has configured the system a certain way, you don't have to type in a password to get to your IdentityNow Launchpad. This is also known as Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) or Kerberos.

NOTES:

  • Following these instructions does not guarantee that you will have "no-password" sign in. Your administrator has to enable it for your company first. If you are not sure if this option is available to you, contact your IT department for assistance.
  • Even when you have this configured correctly, some apps you use might force you to sign in to IdentityNow to use high-risk pages or features. For more information, see Why am I being asked to sign back in to IdentityNow?

The information that follows describes the trust settings you need to define for the following browsers:

NOTE: Your administrator has the ability to configure the settings for these browsers remotely for your entire organization using group policies. If they have done this, you will not need to make any changes to the browser installed on your computer.

The following browser does not require any special trust settings:

  • Safari on Mac

NOTE: Chrome on Mac does not support "no-password" sign in.

Firefox on Windows and Mac

To set up your Firefox browser so you don't have to enter a password to sign in, you must complete these instructions for the Firefox browser.

Internet Explorer and Chrome on Windows

The settings on Internet Explorer are determined by your administrator:

  • In most cases, they're configured automatically and you don't have to do anything.
  • If you have administrator privileges on your workstation, contact your administrator for instructions.

NOTE to IdentityNow Administrators: Please provide these users with the instructions in Internet Explorer and Firefox Settings for IWA Configuration

Chrome honors the trust settings configured in Internet Explorer. Therefore, to use "no-password" sign in on Chrome, follow the instructions here to set up Internet Explorer.
