Does anyone know if its possible to login to Acumatica API using SSO/Active directory login?

Per my research it doesn't look like its possible, only though user name and passwords logins.

Hi Freshman,

I could not  make the API go though the AD sign-on either. I guess we will need to replicate the code/steps that is used by an Acumatica instance for AD sign-on.

Also, I noticed that I have the same issue with Report Designer that requires sign on to an Acumatica instance. For the moment, the sign-on was possible using a native user only. I raised a case to Acumatica about it. I will keep you posted on the progress of this case. 


Have you considered using OAuth 2 for API authorization? It is supported by Contract-based API and OData, and it allows any type of login supported by Acumatica, be that native login/password, AD integration or SSO (including OIDC).

Hi Freshman,

the reply was:

“Unfortunately, as per the current design, the report designer only supported native users.

Currently isn't an option/idea for this so please go to and post your suggestion and vote on it...”

I have added the above requirement as an idea.

Thanks @eudescoelho29  i voted.

I'm just wondering if logging in with SSO to the API is also a part of their answer, because you specified for report designer.
