    If the user has an SMSESSION you just need to specify "Use SSO Token from Context Variable" and provide  it in the authenticate.

    If the cookie isn't present, trap it (at least one must be true structure) and redirect for authentication or collect credentials.

    The most basic structure for our setup is along these lines  - this doesn't trap all conditions just a simple example. If user has no session then it redirects to log in form; that log in form will harvest credentials, set the smsession and redirect back to the target. You'd want to adjust it to meet your environment and trap all the conditions you want (e.g., check protected fails versus no cookie or if no cookie do X but if authenticate fails do Y).
