How to SSO to Sense from a Web Portal

In our use case, the user is already logged into a web portal, authenticated with username and password.

We have set up qlik-auth from braathen, and can successfully login with his demo sample on NodeJS.

However, I seem to only be able to get this working when initiated from Sense (SP initiated). We need the solution to be initiated from the web portal (IdP initiated). (Ref: StackOverflow: Differences between SP an IdP initiated SSO.)

How can we securely pass the loggedin user credentials from the Web portal server side, to the Authentication module (i.e. qlik-auth). 

Is qlik-auth made for SP-initiated (Sense initiated) scenarios only, or am I missing something?

I'm familiar with the QlikView way of ticketing, so maybe that is confusing me.


According to Qlik Sense SAML: ADFS Integration‌, IdP initiated SAML is currently (May 2016) not supported.  But does that mean that Qlik Sens does not IdP-initiated (web portal initiated SSO) at all?

Hope someone can point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance,

Vegard

Has anyone connected to Qlik Sense by SSO?

If so, in what way?

Cheers,

May be, in your case, the most suitable solution should be the "Header Solution" http://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/3.2/Subsystems/PlanningQlikSenseDeployments/Content/Server/Server-S...

Your application will be in the middle between the clients and Qlik Sense. Your app in in charge of authenticate the users, as usual, and allow a user to land on QS just putting the username in the HTML header
