Configure single sign-on (SSO) for Workplace

This page is only applicable to admins. Two-factor authentication and single sign-on are 2 different types of authentication method – if you enable SSO, two-factor authentication is turned off as a result.
Workplace can be integrated with identity providers (IdPs) for managing user authentication. This makes it easier for users to sign into Workplace using the same single sign-on (SSO) credentials they use with other systems.
You can also add multiple SSO providers to your Workplace which allows multiple IdPs to be used at the same time.
SSO for Workplace is directly supported by the following IdPs:
In addition to SSO for authentication, our partners above also support automated account provisioning and user management.
Note: Workplace supports SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) 2.0 for SSO. You may find IdPs not listed above compatible so long as they use SAML 2.0 protocol.
