Single Sign-on

Single Sign-on provides an organization the ability to offer their own third-party authentication provider for an account, without having to create new credentials (usernames/passwords) on the platform.

This provides an extra layer of security for an organization's account.

The SAML 2.0 protocol is supported.

Only SP-initiated SSO is supported. IdP-initiated SSO is not supported.

In addition to the diagrams below, you can also reference the AWS Cognito documentation .

Custom SAML 2.0 Provider

Account administration (accountAdmin abac policy) allows an administrator to configure external SAML providers for login into the platform.

Navigate to Left Menu > Account > Auth Clients to see the currently configured Authentication Clients.
