Configure SSO for Navigate

Create a documented and working production-like SSO environment for ThingWorx Navigate.


In this service, a PTC Expert will perform all the technical tasks associated with installing ThingWorx Navigate 1.8  and configuring Single Sign On (SSO) on a pre-production environment that mimics production configurations as much as possible. Once the production-like environment has been configured and validated, documentation will be provided to your team to repeat the steps in a production environment.

How It Works

This is a 2-week engagement and includes the following activities:

  1. PTC will install Java SDK, Apache Tomcat, ThingWorx 8.3.3 and ThingWorx Navigate 1.8 on your pre-production enviroment.
  2. PTC will configure PingFederate for Single Sign On.
  3. With your assistance, PTC will configure Single Sign On for either Windchill DS, Microsoft ADFS or Azure AD.
  4. PTC will work with you to validate that the configurations work.


The following criteria must be met before this service can be consumed:

  • You must have provided full administrative rights to PTC for the systems where Windchill, PingFederate, and Windchill DS/Microsoft ADFS/Azure AD are running.
  • You must have an operational Windchill System.
  • You must have an operational PingFederate system as your Central Authentication Service (CAS).

  • You must have the appropriate licensing for ThingWorx Navigate.
