Why do I have to enter username and password each time I log in using SAML page?

In most cases, employees who use SAML authentication will be automatically logged in to Web TimeSheet when they enter their instance's URL or click the link provided by their organization. However, some browsers do not forward Windows credentials automatically, and others can be configured not to, so users may still be prompted for their user name and password when logging in.

If you are using Firefox, you can workaround this issue by carrying out the following steps:

  • Open Firefox and type about:config in the address bar.
  • If a warning displays, click the I’ll be careful, I promise! button.
  • A list of preferences will display.
  • In the Filter field, type or paste this filter name: network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris.
  • This preference will display in the Preference Name list.
  • Double click network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris in the list.
  • The Enter string value field displays. Enter your organization's Web TimeSheet URL.
  • Click OK.

Note: Next time you attempt to log in to Web TimeSheet using that browser, you should not be prompted to enter authentication credentials.
