Good Afternoon All!
I've had quite an exciting morning as I discovered that the latest version of Spiceworks has been released and it now supports SSO...
Got it all configured and moved from my test server to one of the main servers and loving it already!!
Just thought I'd let people know the long awaited SSO is now available!!
Only on the user portal. Still seperate accounts for admins
We've just updated our Spiceworks to 6.2 - SSO is great - saves the 'it asks me to log in and I don't know what to put' issues with staff even though its linked to AD.
Will have to update my two installs next week as both IT and Site use it and we are often asked oh what is that password despite it saying above in the blurb this is your usual computer username and password -_-
Any problems with the update? We have 6.1 but it was set up by a now-departed technician so want to be sure I won't hit any bumps during the upgrade before I commit
(though if I do it in the half term I can just roll the virtual server back, I suppose)
It works better than previous versions much quicker. To upgrade just download the .exe from the website and install it on the server. Doesn't take long at all.

Does it actually have to go on the server ???
I was going to install this on my network when i start next month but my new office and the server are at opposite ends of the building and
I cant really leav an RDP session to the server open all day.
I set it up initially on a HP Microserver and it ran reasonably well... Definitely better now it's on one of the main servers though...
Why would you need to leave an RDP Session open all day though? It's all web based...
Just updated to 6.2 at work on the IT one today, its got a few colour tweaks on the main helpdesk everything is very clinical and its making a bit more fuss over Labour Time / rates which is irritating as sometimes I do track time (more to prove a point on how time consuming some rubbish is to sort out) but yet not that fussed. Got a good new filter on tickets to hide out Admin Notes, Purchase notes etc... so you can tidy busy threads up.
Just for info, I downloaded the updated software, it worked out that I already had an older version installed and ran the update wizard automatically. All done in minutes - and yes, the SSO is working great for my users
