SAML Single Sign-On Integration

Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an XML-based framework for authentication and authorization between two entities: a Service Provider and an Identity Provider.

SAML is an open standard mostly used for Single Sign-On (SSO). Authentication information is exchanged through digitally signed XML documents. It's a complex single sign-on (SSO) implementation that enables seamless authentication, mostly between businesses and enterprises.

With SAML, you don't have to worry about typing in authentication credentials or remembering and resetting passwords.

The SAML Single Sign-On integration can only be enabled by Business or Enterprise Team Admins.
