Understanding: Single sign-on (SSO)

Updated by Steen Voersaa

What's SSO?

Single sign-on is an authentication scheme that allows a user to log in with a single ID and password to several software systems. Single sign-on allows the user to log in once and access services without re-entering authentication factors.

Dreamdata can enable SSO for you if you need it. At the moment it requires that you reach out to us and then we will enable it.

Once enabled, users who are using an email on your SSO domain to login will be forced to sign in using their SSO account; upon sign in, they'll be redirected to a page that instructs them to log in using their SSO.

Note that you still have to invite users into your Dreamdata account. We do not let everyone on your SSO access your data without you actively inviting them.

How does it work?

  2. Go to the Single Sign On tab.
  3. The Single sign-on box tells you whether Single sign-on is enabled for your account
