2 minute readDeveloper productivity

To sign in, copy https://<webHostName>/flow/ into a browser window, then enter your CloudBees CD/RO web host name as the "<webHostName>".

One of the following sign-in pages displays, based on the server’s single sign-on (SSO) setting. For information about enabling SSO at your enterprise, refer to Configuring single sign-on for CloudBees Software Delivery Automation.

If you experience page redirect problems during SSO login, modify the session.cookie_samesite setting by:

  1. Opening the /opt/electriccloud/electriccommander/apache/conf/php.ini file.

  2. Changing the session.cookie_samesitesetting value to "Lax".

  3. Restarting your {PROD/UCT} Web server.

SSO enabled

The sample sign-in page below is SSO-enabled with GSuite and Kerberos SSO. Your page may be enabled with other SSO identity providers, such as Okta.
