Configure Single Sign On with SAML

You can configure your xMatters deployment to work with SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language). SAML is often referred to as browser or Internet SSO (Single Sign On) and can greatly increase security while simplifying user account management for organizations.

When you configure SSO for your company, users are authenticated by a centralized identity provider (IdP), and are not able to log on to xMatters natively with a user name and password unless you explicitly grant permission to do so. Instead, users authenticate with the identity provider directly, and access xMatters without entering a user name and password.

The following sections provide general information about SAML and what you'll need to implement SSO in xMatters. For instructions on how to configure SAML in your instance, see Configure SAML in xMatters.
