Login using SSO

(SSO via SAML authentication)

SSO (Single sign-on) is a session and user authentication service that permits a user to use one set of login credentials (name and password) to access multiple applications.

The SSO option is managed by the super admin. The super admin role includes can enable the SSO option for the company, and, manage roles and attributes received from SSO. 

The user will be able to log in using SSO by clicking on the new SSO button.
