SecureLogin SSO
All Versions



I logon to the same application on the same workstation as a number of different users. For example, sometimes I must logon as admin to administer the system and I want to be able to choose which user to logon as but SecureLogin is logging me on automatically as myself every time.

How do I configure multiple logons for one application, so SecureLogin will prompt me with a list to select from?



To have multiple logons for the one application you can use the PickListAdd and PickListDisplay script commands as shown in the below example:

Title ""Logon"" 
Class #32770 
PickListAdd ""Admin"" ?Admin 
PickListAdd ""Test"" ?Test 
PickListAdd ""%CN"" ?Default 
PickListDisplay ?Choice ""Select the user you wish to logon as"" 
SetPlat ?ChoiceSetPlat will create a separate credential set rather than storing them all against the application itself.

In version 3.5.x and later, there are other methods available if you don’t want to use the application definition method. You can use the Add New Login wizard by right clicking on the system tray icon. The supported process should be documented and published for users.

In version 3.5 and later, you can add a ’Login’ set to the application using the ’My Logins’ area in ’Manage Logins’ of your SecureLogin client or Management Console utility.

  1. Navigate to ""My Logins"" and click on the ’New’ button.
  2. Once you have enter new credentials i.e. Username and Password you click the ’Add Link’ button and link the credential set to the application of your choice.
  3. Repeat this process for all logins you wish to add.

The user will then be prompted with a list of users to logon as and can choose.

Tip: If you rarely logon as another user and don’t want to necessarily setup a list to choose from, you can always deactivate SecureLogin (if permitted by the SSO administrator) and logon as the other user by typing the username and password when desired.
