Configuring the SEAS to only respond with (UserID & Destination Indicator) in response to SSP and forward the Authentication request (Password/SSH Key) aganist/to Sterling integrator local store?

The process/flow will follow the below steps from (User to SSP to SEAS to SI)

Step 1 - User Authentication request comes from SSP layer to SEAS;

Step 2 - SEAS validates the user against connected AD and return only "UserID/Username && Destination Indicator (Cloud/On-Premise)" values to SSP

Step 3 - SSP then route the user connection to the destination Sterling Integrator

Step 4 - Destination Sterling Integrator (Cloud/On-Premise) will validate the Authentication of the User based on "Password/SSH Key" against it's local store

    In a world where every organization is operating (and will be operating) in a hybrid cloud model, this makes a lot of sense to have as a capability in SSP/SEAS. While we have heard a lot about dynamic routing capabilities of SSP, many customers may not have been able to take advantage of those capabilities because of its dependencies on SAEA/AD and the complex architecture it brings into supporting it.
