Logon Manager

Logon Manager displays your stored logons. It also lets you modify properties of each logon (for example, your user IDs and passwords) and update your settings with changes applied by your SSO administrator.

To display Logon Manager, click the TAM E-SSO Tray Icon image\productIcon.gif on the Windows system tray to display the shortcut menu. Point to Configuration, then click Logon Manager. The Logon Manager dialog appears.

As you add or create logons for Windows applications or Web sites, and add logons for host/mainframe applications, the available logons are displayed in Logon Manager.


Tip: Logons that appear in grey, italicized text require activation by the SSO administrator. See Credentials without a configured logon.

Applications that share credentials


Your SSO administrator may configure two or more applications to share the same username and password in a password group. If the credentials for one application changes, the credentials for the other applications in the group are also changed.

In some cases, where you need multiple credentials for a single application (for example having multiple mail accounts in Microsoft Outlook), you may need to exclude those additional "identities" (each with different credentials) from this feature. If this applies to a new logon you are creating for an application you have already added, you will have the option to "Exclude" the new logon.


Adding multiple application logons



If your SSO administrator has provided a new list of pre-configured application logons, the Logon Manager's [Add] button displays a drop-down option to Add Multiple Applications. Choose this option to add these new logons and supply your credentials.


Credentials without a configured logon



Some logons may appear in Logon Manager in grey, italicized text with a grey icon. If you attempt to use such a logon or view its properties (by selecting it and clicking [Properties]), this message appears:

Credential corresponds to an application that is not currently configured in TAM E-SSO.

This message typically appears when TAM E-SSO has been upgraded from a previous version. It means that your credentials are safely stored, but the application logon configuration (that tells TAM E-SSO where to put the credentials) needs to be upgraded as well. Contact your SSO administrator to acquire the updated logons.
