Reminder - CA SSO 12.8 Validation (Beta) Build #1 is Available Now 

10-13-2017 06:04 PM

The CA SSO 12.8 release is in its validation phase.  The first beta build of 12.8 is available now in the CA SSO Validation Program on (you can enroll by going to that site, finding the CA SSO program and enrolling).   In the first build these includes these enhancements:

  • Native support for validation of JWT Tokens as an out of the box CA SSO authentication scheme. 
    • Refresh Token for OpenID Connect
    • Whitelisting for authentication schemes
    • JSON request and response support when calling CA SSO’s authentication and authorization web service interface on the CA SSO Access Gateway.  In currently shipping versions, CA SSO Access Gateway supports XML based request and responses, this enhancement adds support for JSON.



For more information about these capabilities, please see the New Features section of the release notes in the parallel work-in-progress technical information and guides here:



Our plan is to offer two additional builds with more functionality (in the areas of the REST interface,  OIDC support , and platform support) one in the last week of October and again in the last week of November.  We look forward to your testing these builds and supplying feedback.

Thank you for the reply Chris_Hackett. I take it that is usually not available to customers to download or does CA have a beta program and do customers sign up for that?
