Single sign-on (SSO) is a secure user authentication technology that allows users to access multiple applications with only one set of credentials.
Third-party SSO allows users to access multiple applications using a set of credentials from a third-party identity provider (IdP).
As part of our commitment to high levels of data security, we support third-party SSO to offer your users the ability to access our products using their Microsoft or Google accounts. This feature is available on the Portal sign-in page.
Apart from the immediate benefits of saving time on every sign in and having one less password to remember, third-party SSO introduces:
- Increased security. Microsoft and Google SSO provides additional security features, including Multi-Factor Authentication.
- Simplified administration. Administrators can maintain strong and consistent security policies, and manage and close user accounts with ease.
Both Google and Microsoft sign-in services are enabled by default in the Codat Portal. We recommend keeping them enabled to make the most of the benefits they provide. Administrators can also turn off password-based sign-in completely and force all their users to sign in with their Google or Microsoft account.
As long as the email addresses are the same, attempting to sign in with a Google or Microsoft account will automatically link it to the existing Codat account.
To manage the third-party SSO services, perform the following steps in Codat Portal:
- In the left side bar, click Account > Users.
- Click Manage sign-in.
- In the Manage sign-in methods dialog, use the toggles to switch the services on and off.
If you decide to disable third-party SSO, your users will still be able to sign in with their email and password credentials.
