    Hi,

     

    I'm simply looking for a high-level overview of how CA SSO supports Docket today -- and possibly in R12.8.

     

    I've browsed a few discussions and it looks one can run CA SSO and CA Access Gateway in a container.  I've seen a request (with numerous votes from the community) for CA SSO agents to run in containers.    Is this a fair summary?

     

    The reason I ask is that we have a pressing need to run Apache/JBoss in containers. If web agents will be able to run in containers in say R12.8 -- that would be nice to know.

     

    We currently don't use CA Access Gateway -- but I'm wondering if we need to consider deploying this if this product is our only option to support SIteMinder-protected Apache/JBoss applications on Docker.

     

    Any high-level guidance on how a company should support Docker/CA SSO Agents today -- and in the future -- would be tremendously appreciated!

     

    Cheers, Jim

    Thanks for your quick response!  As our immediate need is for web agents -- this is exactly what I was looking for.  

     

    Aside, my comments regarding the policy server and CA Access Gateway came from the announcement  below.

    Glad to be of help.

     

    Availability of a technology preview of CA SSO as a software appliance 

     

    This is only available in validation site I believe. This is not available for GA release outside of validation.

    We have successfully used the 12.52 sp1 cr6 Web Agent in a Docker container on a Windows Server 2016. We were able to install it and configure it with no issues.
