Question:
What does the SSO URL do in the subscription settings?
Answer:
This URL is used for the following reasons:
  • it is included in email communication to users
  • shows at the bottom of the logout screen
  • easy reference for setting up the legacy excel plug-in.  The latest version for 2016 uses a different process for authentication see additional information below.

This URL does not affect the actual SSO connection or the ability for users to use the URL to connect to Agile Central.  In other words, beyond the above conditions the URL is largely cosmetic in the subscription settings/configuration screen.

keywords: agile central, rally, single sign on, sso, address, url
