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.

Prerequisites

Installation

Passing domain as a parameter

The XI_DN (Domain Name) command line parameter is required when installing with direct SSO sign-in from the application.

Before installing, make sure the machine meets the minimum system requirements for the application. You can check the system requirements from XSplit Support page.

  1. Run Command Prompt as administrator.

  2. Enter the command line below.

    <installer filename> XI_DN=<domain name>

    See Example 1:

    XSplit_VCam_2.3.2106.0401.exe XI_DN=xsplit.com
  3. Follow the setup process until installation is complete.

Once installation is complete, a Domain entry is created in the Registry.

The Domain entry 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.

Embedding domain into the installer

The DN parameter specifically supports being embedded in the MSI or EXE installer file name, by appending -DN=<domain name> to the filename of the installer. See filename format below.

<installer name>-DN=<domain name>.<installer file extension>

See Example 2:

XSplit_VCam_2.3.2106.0401-DN=xsplit.com.exe

If “yourdomain.com” is a valid domain, executing the custom named installer in Example 2 would result in the same registry settings as in Example 1 above.

Once installation is complete, a Domain entry is created in the Registry.

If the installer is executed with the domain name in the filename and DN parameter at the same time, then the embedded DN name will be ignored.

Using MSI Installer

When using the MSI installer, follow the same procedure above for installing while using the MSI installer filename in the command line.

The /L*VX (Installer Log) command line parameter, for MSI installation only, is optional for saving an installer log file to the same location as the installer file.


See Example 3 for Passing Domain as a Parameter:

XSplit_VCam_US_2.3.2106.0401.msi XI_DN=xsplit.com /L*VX xvc_installer.log

See Example 4 for Embedding Domain into the Installer:

XSplit_VCam_US_2.3.2106.0401-DN=xsplit.com.msi 

To silent install, follow the same procedure above for installing by Passing Domain as a Parameter while using the command line below.

msiexec /i <MSI installer filename> XI_DN=<domain name> /qn /L*VX <log filename>.log

See Example 5:

msiexec /i XSplit_VCam_US_2.3.2106.0401.msi XI_DN=xsplit.com /qn /L*VX xvc_installer.log

To get the latest MSI installer and read more information on using it, go to Network Automated Installations.

Verifying the Domain Entry

If XI_DN parameter is used when installing, a Domain entry is created in Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Software\XSplit\%product name% registry key (See example: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Software\XSplit\VCam\Domain). The value of the Domain entry is set to the domain specified to let the application know that the login function should be tied up to the SSO for the specified domain.

To verify, open Registry Editor and go to the registry key location, and you should see the Domain entry there.

Note that updating the application will not delete the Domain entry, but uninstalling the application will delete the Domain.

License Redemption

A user that logs in to the company's SSO authentication page from the application will automatically redeem a slot on your Domain Licenses. Please note that once you have consumed all the slots, the next new Domain user won't be able to log in and redeem a license.

You may also remove the license that was redeemed by clicking the Blacklist button.
