We upgraded from 8.1.14 to 8.1.17 today. The first thing I noticed is that users are no longer automatically logged into Vision projects via SSO. The credentials still work when entered manually, so the AD connection is still working. Enable SSO login is still checked in the projects.
Is there something that can be done to resolve this?
Here is the response I got from the Ignition team:
SSO for AD user sources has been forcefully disabled as of 8.1.17 due to a security vulnerability. Unfortunately for now, it is much better to have SSO disabled until a permanent fix is released in a later version (TBD).
Do you know if this is a temporary situation, or one that is more long term? That way we can let our customers know that might be interested in upgrading… ie upgrade to 8.1.17 or wait for another version or two for this to be corrected.
Yeah… that’s the part they like. They want the operator to just sign onto the PC and then launch Vision and it automagically works. Unfortunately it’s one of those things that will break the operators brain if it changes.
