How to Update the Properties of an Affiliate Application

You can use the MMC Snap-In or this command to update one or more application properties, as specified by the XML file. You must be an Affiliate Administrator to perform this task. The following is an example XML file that lists the fields you can update.

<SSO>
<application name="SSOApplication">
<description>An SSO Application</description>
<contact>someone@companyname.com</contact>
<appUserAccount>DomainName\AppUserGroup</appUserAccount>
<appAdminAccount>DomainName\AppAdminGroup</appAdminAccount>
<flags allowTickets="no" validateTickets="yes"  timeoutTickets="yes" enableApp="no" />
</application>
</SSO>

After you create an affiliate application, you cannot modify the following properties:

  • Name of the affiliate application

  • Fields associated with the affiliate application

  • Affiliate application type (host group, individual, or configuration store)

  • Administration account same as affiliate administrators group. (Specifying this flag will always use the affiliate administrators group as the administrator account for this affiliate application)

ImportantImportant
You can use local accounts for the administration account and user account by setting the allowLocalAccounts flag to yes. However, you can only use this flag in single-computer scenarios.
