Single-Sign On Without LDAP


I've setup our SSO agent, but now I'm getting a "Failed to set cookie." error message on the login screen. From the searching I've done that appears to be LDAP related so I'm guessing it's because I don't have LDAP configured. So my question is, is it possible to configure SSO without LDAP so that it only tries to match the username to a user in the local Splunk database?

Hope this helps ...

If there is local user present in Splunk and HTTP header passed contains same user, splunk should log you in even with authType=Splunk.
