CA Single Sign-On Integration Guide Overview

Pivotal Web Services End of Availability Announced
For more information, see Frequently Asked Questions.

CA Single Sign-On (formally known as CA SiteMinder) is a Web Access Management system that supports advanced authentication, risk-based security policies, and federated identities. This documentation describes how to configure a single sign-on partnership between CA Single Sign-On as the Identity Provider (IdP) and the Single Sign-On Service (SSO) for Pivotal Cloud Foundry as the Service Provider (SP).

SSO supports service provider-initiated authentication flow and single logout. It does not support identity provider-initiated authentication flow. All SSO communication takes place over SSL.


To integrate CA Single Sign-On with Pivotal Web Services (PWS), you need the following:

CA Single Sign-On

  • CA Single Sign-On 12.52

  • A Signed Certificate by a Certificate Authority

Note: To configure SAML, you must contact Pivotal to have Single Sign-On enabled for your PWS organizations through plan creation. You should be added as a plan administrator. For help configuring plans, see the Manage Service Plans topic.
