XSplit's Team License Manager allows system administrators to install the application and set up direct SSO sign-in for end-users.
Once SSO is set up in Team License Manager, an end-user can log in to XSplit applications by using the SSO sign-in option in the general login dialog. But to allow the application to directly open your company's SSO authentication page, it's possible to configure XSplit applications with an SSO domain during installation.
Before installing, make sure the machine meets the minimum system requirements for the application. You can check the system requirements from the XSplit Support page.
There's two ways to install the application and set up direct SSO sign-in:
Passing domain as a parameter - This generates a machine license during product installation.
Embedding domain into the installer - This prepares the machine license to be applied on first run of application.
The XI_DN (Domain Name) command line parameter is required when installing with direct SSO sign-in from the application.
The /L*VX “installer.log” (Installer Log File) command line parameter is optional for saving an installer log file to the same location as the installer file.
<installer filename> XI_DN=<domain name>
XSplit_VCam_US_2.3.2108.0302.msi XI_DN=xsplit.com /L*VX "installer.log"
To silent install:
msiexec /i XSplit_VCam_US_2.3.2108.0302.msi XI_DN=xsplit.com /qn /L*VX "installer.log"
Once installation is complete, a Domain Key is created in the Registry.
The DN parameter specifically supports being embedded in the installer, by appending
-DN=<domain name> to the installer filename.
<installer name>-DN=<domain name>.<installer file extension>
If “yourdomain.com” is a valid domain, executing the custom named installer in the Example 2 would result in the same registry setting (Domain Key) as in Example 1 above.
The Domain key will let the application know that the login button should point directly to SSO login as specified in Team License Manager's domain settings. The application should send the content of the registry value when opening the login form as the domain query string.
The application should also disable the “skip login” if the application is installed as an SSO application. End-users will be required to login before they can use the application.
To verify the domain key, go to this registry key location
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\XSplit\%product name% and you should see a
Domain entry there.
Updating the application will not delete the Domain Key.
Uninstalling the application will delete the Domain Key.
A user that logs in to the company's SSO authentication page from the application will automatically redeem a slot on the Team Manager's Domain Licenses. Please note that once all slots have been consumed, the next new Domain user won't be able to log in and redeem a license.
As long as you have successfully installed and verified the domain key installation, then you can install maintenance or update at any time without having to deploy the XI_DN parameter.
Installed application using the MSI installer by defaultsets auto-update to disabled. If auto-update is enabled, then whenever the application is online, it can detect if there is a newer version available and allows the end-user to update.
