Crowd & Confluence SSO

I'm trying to convert an existing confluence 4.0.3 installation with Crowd 2.3.7. I'm able to connect the two and recieve logs of a good sync. however if in order for login to work my serph config has to have both uncommented

<!-- Default Confluence authenticator, which uses the configured user management for authentication. -->
        <authenticator class="com.atlassian.confluence.user.ConfluenceAuthenticator"/>
    <!-- Custom authenticators appear below. To enable one of them, comment out the default authenticator above and uncomment the one below. -->

    <!-- Authenticator with support for Crowd single-sign on (SSO). -->
        <authenticator class="com.atlassian.confluence.user.ConfluenceCrowdSSOAuthenticator"/>

What am I missing in the setup?

Hi Steven,

did u created crowd.properties file into WEB-INF/classes folder?

application.name                        crowd
application.password                    MY_PASSWORD_HERE
application.login.url                 http://localhost:8095/crowd/console/
crowd.server.url                        http://localhost:8095/crowd/services/
crowd.base.url                          http://localhost:8095/crowd/
session.isauthenticated                 session.isauthenticated
session.tokenkey                        session.tokenkey
session.validationinterval              0
session.lastvalidation                  session.lastvalidation

Some check that you should performed:

- verify that into your crowd directory you defined which groups need to be synchronized to Confluence.

- verify that user that you are using for login is not present into your COnfluence Internal Directory (different username).

- verify directories order into your confluence.

Hope this helps

The crowd properties are set and set correctly according to your file provided, I get to the landing page, I can hit login, then it just returns back to the home page and doesn't complete the login, I'm not seeing anything of not in the error logs either :/
