    Hello Praty,


    Would you like to know what's the "Manage CA Single Sign-On Configurations" task for?
    This task is used for setting the CA API Gateway to work with another CA product "CA Single Sign-On".
    Unless the CA Single Sign-On is available in your environment, this task is meaningless.


    Best regards,

    To clarify further, this specific set of properties contain the connection information to connect to a CA Single Sign On product instance. You can then use an Authentication assertion to authenticate a user against this CA Single Sign On configuration.

    sso means you login once, then you can access different resources without login repeatedly.

    Depends on what you want to achieve, the implementation is different.

    A common use case/scenario is that you login to your company domain once, then you don't need to login again to your internal email, internal IM, internal website, etc. that how CA product "CA Single Sign-On " can help here.

    If you are talking about login once on your device, then you can access a bunch of apps (based on gateway), then the MAG/MAS sdk can help you -- Mobile Single Sign-On Policies - CA Mobile API Gateway - 4.1 - CA Technologies Documentation
