What is Single Sign-On and why should I use it?Single Sign-On is an increasingly popular method of integrating your site's user details with IdeaScale's authentication system. The benefit to configuring an SSO integration is that it alleviates the user's need to log in to IdeaScale with yet another set of credentials. With SSO employed, access to the IdeaScale community is predetermined by the user's access to your intranet. SSO removes the login process--which many community admins feel is a significant barrier to participation.
What kinds of Single Sign-On does IdeaScale support?IdeaScale supports Token-Based/Multipass, and SAML 2.0/Shibboleth and Yammer SSO.
Multipass SSO - A Multipass is simply a hash of keys and values, provided as an AES encrypted JSON hash. To know more about MultipassHelp Article: http://support.ideascale.com/customer/portal/articles/2361036-multipass-sso
SAML SSO - SAMLHelp Article: http://support.ideascale.com/customer/portal/articles/1006141-saml-single-sign-on-at-ideascale
Yammer SSO - Use your Yammer as an SSO.Help Article: http://support.ideascale.com/customer/portal/articles/1681595
Please Note: Configuring multiple IDP SSO in the community will not apply all at the same time. Yammer and SAML SSO do not work together. In case you have SAML and Yammer SSO set up, only Yammer SSO will appear during logins.
