9.4 Using a Predefined Application to Enable a Web Application

The following example demonstrates enabling single sign-on for a Yahoo e-mail account. SecureLogin provides a predefined application for Yahoo mail.

NOTE:This procedure assumes that you already have a Yahoo e-mail account.

  1. Start your web browser and go to http://mail.yahoo.com. The Enter your credentials dialog box is displayed.

  2. Provide your username and password.

  3. Click OK.

    SecureLogin saves your credentials and uses them to log in to your Yahoo mail account. Your Yahoo account displays with your credentials securely saved.

  4. To test whether the single sign-on has been successful, sign out of Yahoo mail. A confirmation message appears. Click OK.

  5. SecureLogin enters your credentials and logs you back to your Yahoo mail account.

    If your login is successful, your application is defined correctly.

    If your login is not successful, delete the application definition and repeat the above steps.

    You might also need to review the application definition for completeness of event responses and errors.
