The CAS Authentication Provider enables the Cloud CMS Application Server to authenticate, validate tokens and load user profile information against servers that implement the Central Authentication Service SSO protocol (either version 2 or version 3).

For more information on Authentication within the App Server, see App Server Authentication / SSO.


Here are all of the properties that may be configured:

"auth": {
    "providers": {

                "validateURL": ""
