Our Company is starting to implement PW CONNECT (10.0.2.320) on Windows 10 laptops. Mind you: NOT web server nor cloud services. Also it is just the clients that get updated, Serverside is v8i RU2.
We encounter a ProjectWise "challenge" regarding authentication from the ProjectWise client to the back-end.
Currently, our ProjectWise client (v8i) has a single sing-on experience based on domain authentication. We are working on a new workspace concept which is a Azure AD joined device only, and uses modern authentication. So no domain authentication at all.
Is it possible for the ProjectWise client to authenticate to the back-end based on OAuth2 (modern authentication), so that we can achieve single sign-on?
If so, what would be necessary to achieve this?
If not, is there any other way to use single sign for ProjectWise without domain authentication?
Any help is welcome!
Thanks for reading,
you may have to move to Azure Federated AD accounts and login via the connection client instead. We have a federated AD with Bentley but we haven't implemented the login to ProjectWise yet, we're still using regular domain accounts. You'll probably need to open a ticket with Bentley on this one.
hmm, and i believe the federated logins require CONNECT on the server side, not just the client side.
Any update on this? I am trying to do the same.
