CloudBees CI can be configured to authenticate with CloudBees Software Delivery Automation, where the CloudBees Software Delivery Automation server serves as the identity provider for CloudBees CI.

Review the following information before you enable CloudBees CI to use single sign-on:

  • Authentication must be set up in CloudBees Software Delivery Automation.

  • In CloudBees CI, the connection to CloudBees Software Delivery Automation must be enabled for single sign-on to work. Setting up the connection to CloudBees Software Delivery Automation in CloudBees CI
