Automatic login to the Office Plugin with SSO

Introduction

This document explains how your users can automatically log in with the Office Plugin with Single Sign-On (SSO).

Administrators can set up automatic login with SSO. This ensures that users do not need to log in manually to ZIVVER via the Login button in the ZIVVER toolbar. With automatic login with Single Sign-On enabled, the login session is automatically prolonged after 30 days if the user is still active. You can activate this feature by setting an additional registry key.

Conditions

  1. You have set up Single Sign-On SSO for your organization.

  2. The user has an active ZIVVER account.
  3. Your Identity Provider does not require a manual action to log in.

    If your Identity Provider requires the user to enter a second authentication factor or manually initiate a log in, it is not possible to enable automatic login to ZIVVER.

Activate automatic login

Choose the correct registry keys

If the ZIVVER Office Plugin was installed for the current user (just-me installation), then use one of the two registry keys from HKEY_CURRENT_USER.

  • Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Zivver\OfficePlugin\Settings

or

  • Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Zivver\OfficePlugin\Settings
    Use the registry key with Wow6432Node if you have a 32-bit Office installation on a 64-bit operating system.

If the ZIVVER Office Plugin was installed for all users (everyone), then use one of the two registry keys from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

  • Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Zivver\OfficePlugin\Settings

or

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Zivver\OfficePlugin\Settings
    Use the registry key with Wow6432Node if you have a 32-bit Office installation on a 64-bit operating system.

Create the registry key

  1. Create one of the four above mentioned registry keys for a user, based on installment type, bitness of your Office installation and operating system.

    You can add the registry keys to a GPO if you are using GPO to roll out other registry settings for ZIVVER.
  2. Create a DWORD (32-bits).

  3. Name it AutoEnableSsoAccounts.

  4. Double click AutoEnableSsoAccounts and Enter 1 as Value.

  5. Create a DWORD (32-bits).

  6. Name it TryAutoReloginSso.

  7. Double click TryAutoReloginSso and Enter 1 as Value.

Disable automatic login

Remove the registry keys above from the register to disable automatic login.
