Configuring Pulse with CAM Security and SSO

This article describes the steps to configure Pulse to connect to a Planning Analytics instance using CAM authentication and SSO (Single Sign-on).

Step 1: Finding the CAM Passport

To connect to the TM1 instance, Pulse will require the CAM Passport from TM1 Web. There are different ways to get the CAM Passport, in this article we are going to grab the CAM Passport from one of the TM1 Web responses:

1) Open your web browser, open the developer console, go to the Network tab and make sure the Preserve log is on and the Disable cache is off.

2) Enter the TM1 Web URL, after logging in (with a TM1 user with admin rights) you should be able to see lots of responses in the Network tab.

The CAM Passport can be found in many responses. If you click on the one called tm1web.html?cam_passeport…, you will find it in the Request URL as shown below:

Step 2: Updating Pulse settings

Copy the CAM Passeport, go to the Pulse instance settings and update the following settings:

  • CAM Passeport: the one you just copied

  • Process to Keep Alive CAM Passeport: You will need to create a blank process which does nothing, Pulse will execute it every 5 min to keep the CAM Passeport alive. In this example the new TM1 process is called zPulseToKeepAliveCAMPasseport.

  • User Name: The user that you used to login to TM1 Web


Note: CAM Namespace is case sensitive, the username that you put in Pulse settings as to have the same case as the one you see in Architect:

That’s it, you can now update the documentation
