What is delegation?

With the delegation mechanism, the GAS is able to delegate the start of a web application or a web service to another Genero REST service in order to perform some controls before granting access and starting the application.

When you configure delegation, it introduces an additional step in the Genero Application Server workflow in order to perform some controls such as authentication, authorization, monitoring, or whatever is required before the requested application or service is started.

Delegation is required if you want to enable Single-sign-on (SSO) authentication for remote access to applications, see What is Single sign-on (SSO)?).
