How to set up SAML 2.0 Single Sign-On

If your organization uses the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) standard for login authentication, you can configure snapADDY for signing in through a supported Single Sign-On (SSO) provider (e.g. Azure AD, G Suite, ADFS, OneLogin, Okta etc.)

User accounts can be managed at snapADDY via an external SAML 2.0 identity provider, which can be configured in the snapADDY dashboard ( snapADDY uses the email address as unique identifier for their users. To ensure a successful integration of SAML 2.0 workflow, the following format must be used for the NameID:

Step 2:
