Active directory, login prompt

We did configure Active Directory under "DSC -> Active Directory".

"Problem":

I log onto my Windows 8, AD-connected, client machine.

I open Chrome (or IE, Firefox) and browse to the AccessPoint webserver.

Now the "login window" pops up, and I have to enter my AD username/password in order to get logged in.

Question:

I thought that since I'm logged into the AD my Windows machine, and the QV-Server is AD-connected, I would automatically get authenticated with that username/password and let in to AccessPoint?

I have found that in some instances, if you use a fully qualified domain/server name (eg domain@company.com) in the access point URL, you get SSO behaviour, but if you use the unqualified server name  you have to log in again.

(In other instances it is the other way round!)

Eg

http://server.mydomain.company.com/Qlikview/

vs

http://server/Qlikview/

Hi,

I would like to try to explain why this is happening. This issue will occur if you use an FQDN or IP that contains periods. The Web browser will consider anything that has a period in the address as being an Internet Side and will not pass your user information to the site. They is why you are required to log in. You can put the site into Trusted Sites and then it will pass the user information.
