Support Request: How to user SSO with SideKiosk

Description

Dear Support,

we just have a pilot in our company with the sitekiosk software and also proximity sensors and now struggle to get a proper configuration in place.
Our Idea:
Sitekiosk is started within a windows and Users have to login one time with there domain credentials, after that they can use every website in sitekiosk without another login. When they are done, they leave the kiosk and the logout is done automatically through the proximity sensor.
Could you please verify that this will work and how we can configure this?

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

To start SiteKiosk automatically on any Windows user login you can use the “Customized” start options:
Start SiteKiosk in a Windows user account having local admin rights and choose “Customized” in the quick start dialog that is displayed. In the “Customized” settings enable the option “Run SiteKiosk automatically at Windows startup (auto start)” while leaving all other options disabled (“Settings only apply to the restricted SiteKiosk user account”, “Disable any keyboard input during startup” and “Log on automatically at system startup”).
Further information about the starting modes:
https://www.provisio.com/helpconsole/SiteKiosk%20Help/en-US/default.htm?select_starting_mode.htm


Logout:
To provide the option to logout the Windows user when SiteKiosk is started you can add a custom button to the Browser Skin (-->Start Page & Browser-->Customized-->Browser Toolbar-->Individual Buttons).

If you want that the Windows user logout happens when using the “normal” SiteKiosk Logout button and when the screen saver activates you can use a custom script.
Example (without further free support):

SiteKiosk.OnReset = OnReset;

function OnReset(){
      SiteKiosk.LogoffWindows();
}

Just copy & paste the lines of Example 1 or Example 2 into an editor (e.g. Notepad) and save as JS file (e.g. WindowsUserLogOff.js) to the folder “…\SiteKiosk\Html”.
Then add the script file to the SiteKiosk Configuration (-->Start Page & Browser-->Advanced-->On startup of SiteKiosk execute the following script file).

The proximity sensor then e.g. can be used to keep the screen saver deactivated (additionally to keyboard, touch input and mouse) so that you can set a low value for the idle time.
Further information about the usage of additional sensors with the screen saver here:
https://www.provisio.com/helpconsole/SiteKiosk%20Help/en-US/default.htm?screen_saver___2nd_monitor.htm#two


To use a proximity sensor directly for a user logoff would only be possible by doing a customization.
In case the proximity sensor you use sends data via keyboard emulation you can check this:

Hello,

To avoid any misunderstanding. You can of course also use the default restricted account user (SiteKiosk) with “Auto Start” mode and enter the domain credentials when accessing the corresponding web page (SiteKiosk will show a login dialog then).
Then you can use these pages without logging in again until SiteKiosk logout or screen saver activation (which deletes the temporary internet files etc. and makes SiteKiosk to return to the start page: https://www.provisio.com/helpconsole/SiteKiosk%20Help/en-US/default.htm?logout.htm).
