Why set up SSO?

There are a few different use cases for setting up SSO:

Set up SSO

1) In Your Team page under the Security section, click Setup SSO

2) In the SSO setup page, you will see the generated SSO ID URL and SSO IDs. Send both the SSO ID URL and SSO ID to your IT team to set up.

3) Your IT team typically completes this step. Follow the setup instructions for your SSO provider in our guides below.

4) Once they have completed the setup, ask your IT team for the Identity Provider Single Sign-On URL and X.509 Certificate.

Note: If your IT team sends you an XML file, you will need to extract the Identity Provider Single Sign-On URL and X.509 Certificate from it. Ask your IT team if you’re unsure what you should provide to us.

5) Enter the Identity Provider Single Sign-On URL and X.509 Certificate in the SSO setup page
