Enabling SAML Single Sign-On

< All Topics

Updated: April 19, 2021

You can enable SAML single sign-on for all role types (staff members, contributors, and attendees).

To enable SAML single sign-on in Engagez

  1. Sign in as admin to the venue you would like to configure for SAML SSO.
  2. Navigate to Administer > Features tab from the Configure section
  3. Scroll down to the “3RD PARTY ONLINE REGISTRATION AND SSO” section
  4. Check SAML Single sign-on
  5. Click on the pencil on the right side of this option to open the configuration section.
  6. Configure your Identity Provider with the given Single sign on URL and SP Entry ID. 
  7. If your Identity Provider (IdP) provides a metadata link, copy the link into IDP Metadata URL. (This is all that is required if you have a metadata link).
  8. You may also provide IDP URL, X.509 Certificate and optional Single Logout URL.

Sign-in and Sign-out Links

Engagez supports both Service Provider initiated as well as Identity Provider initiated authentication.

SIGN IN
