Starling 2FA

Active Roles version 7.3 supports integration with One Identity Starling services. The Starling Join feature in Active Roles now enables you to connect to One Identity Starling, the Software as a Service (SaaS) solution of One Identity. The Starling Join feature enables access to the Starling services through Active Roles thus allowing to benefit from the Starling services such as Two-factor Authentication and Identity Analytics and Risk Intelligence.

To start the wizard, click Configure in the One Identity Starling area on the Dashboard page in the Configuration Center main window. For further information and step-by-step instructions, see the “Initial configuration” topic in the “Installing and configuring the Web Interface” section in the Active Roles Quick Start Guide.

A video demonstration is available in the following knowledge base article:

In order to use Starling Two-Factor Authentication with Active Roles, you must first join One Identity Starling to Active Roles on the Active Roles Configuration Center. The Join to One Identity Starling wizard also includes links, which provide assistance for using Starling:

  • The Online link displays information about the Starling product and the benefits you can take advantage of by subscribing to Starling services.
  • The Trouble Joining link displays the Starling support page with information on the requirements and process for joining with Starling.


Reporting is an optional component of Active Roles. To use Active Roles reports, the following components are required:

  • Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) must be installed and configured.

    NOTE: If the SQL Server service and SRSS are on different hosts, a “Double-Hop” authentication issue may occur. For more information, see the knowledge base article,

  • The Active Roles service account must have sufficient permissions to create and write to a database on the SQL Server.

    NOTE: The database cannot be pre-created, and must be created by Active Roles.

  • The Active Roles service account must have sufficient permission to publish reports on the SRS server.

    NOTE: Quest Knowledge Portal is no longer included with Active Roles 7.x. To view reports, use the native SQL Server Report URL.
