If you were to check this box, you would be telling WAS that you want security enabled at the WAR level. With option 2, we wish for the user to be able to get past the WAR and to the Worklight app and then they are forced to authenticate. If you enable this box, the user will be forced to authenticate at the WAR level, and then they are allowed to proceed to the Worklight app. The pros and cons for each of these options are described in the pdf.

Client <----> WL Server (Adapter) <----> Web SSO <------> Web Server (Service hosted)
How to move ahead so that I should provide the credentials for SSO and access the service apart from setting the LTPA token for future accessing of other protected services from the same web server.
