  • For customers looking to implement Webex with SSO: if WebEx is behind active directory this creates a 2-factor authentication which is currently not supported by SAP
  • LMS/Webex integration is based on the Webex super admin credentials added to the VLS configuration file. LMS makes API calls using these admin credentials
  • To bypass two-step authentication Webex requires a different API implementation

Note: When trying to implement Webex with SSO a Session Ticket will be required, when an attendee or host tries to access with a password, an error message will appear: VLS Error: Session ticket is required
