The Query String Authentication system settings page lets you configure the settings that allow AirWatch to communicate with the query string authentication provider. A query string authentication provider is a non-SAML service that allows users to log in to a web portal and from there select a web service or application and automatically be authenticated and signed in without having to re-enter their credentials.
- Current Setting – Select whether to Inherit or Override the displayed settings. Inherit means use the settings of the current organization group's parent OG, while Override enables the settings for editing so you can modify the current OG's settings directly.
|Enable Query String Authentication||Select to enable the feature.|
Enter the query string parameter name in the Parameter Name field. This must be a single value – multiple parameter names are not supported. This is the value that AirWatch uses to recognize the login request.
This parameter name comes from your query string authentication provider. Consult your authentication provider for instructions on retrieving this information.
|Session Validation URL||Enter the URL of the query string authentication provider instance. It is used for session validation and administrator account details retrieval. If needed, you can include a port number for network traffic as part of the URL.|
An example of the login request to the AirWatch Console would be: https://acme.mdm.com/login?<Parameter>=<session_ID>, where acme.mdm.com is the URL of your AirWatch Console, <Parameter> is the parameter name, and <session_ID> is the session ID passed from the query string authentication provider to AirWatch for authentication.
