Single Sign On with the Actuate BIRT Viewer

In an earlier post (Showing BIRT Reports using the Actuate JSAPI), we talked about using the new Actuate JSAPI to integrate report content within your application. This article also discussed deploying the Actuate BIRT Viewer (contained in the Deployment Kit), which extends the capabilities of the open source Viewer to include quite a few interactive features, such as dynamic resorting, filtering, grouping and report storage. As a follow-up to that article, I wanted to discuss security integration using the Actuate BIRT Viewer. We just finished up this article and it is posted on BIRT Exchange. This article discusses single sign on and how it can be accomplished under the different deployment models that are available.
