One Identity Starling helps to combine products from the One Identity line to create a secure and customizable cloud service. For more information, see the Starling technical documentation.
If you are using a Starling 2FA plugin, (that is, you have uploaded it to Basic Settings > Plugins and then configured it at Policies > AA Plugin Configurations) and the SPS node is joined to One Identity Starling, you do not have to specify api_key and api_url in the Starling 2FA plugin configuration. This configuration method is more secure.
Joining SPS to One Identity Starling
This section describes how to use SPS with One Identity Starling and how to take advantage of companion features from Starling products, such as Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) and Identity Analytics.
To join SPS to One Identity Starling
Navigate to Basic Settings > Starling Integration.
CAUTION: If SPS nodes are joined to a cluster, ensure that you initiate your Starling integration from the Central Management node.
To check the availability of SPS and Starling, that is, if SPS can connect directly to the web and SPS can access Starling, click Check availability.
If your SPS cannot connect directly to the web, check your Internet connection and ensure that SPS can connect to the web, then re-initiate the process of joining your SPS to Starling. Ensure that SPS can access the following websites:
If your SPS is behind a web proxy, navigate to Basic Settings > Network > HTTPS Proxy and configure the proxy settings.
For more information, see Network settings.
NOTE: Currently, only built-in Certificate Authorities are supported. If the web proxy replaces the certificates of the Starling website on-the-fly, the join process might fail.
If SPS cannot access Starling, wait until Starling is available and re-initiate the process of joining your SPS to Starling.
