Learn from the following videos on how you setup authentication methods to enable Single Sign On from multiple applications without having an account in Resolution Intelligence Cloud.
This article describes the federated environment that provides authentication of users via third party apps and single sign on (SSO) flows that are offered by Resolution Intelligence Cloud.
An environment in which the users authenticate themselves using a separate mechanism that allows to generate credentials. For example, ADFS, Azure AD, GSuite, and Okta allows you to generate independent user credentials. With these credentials, you can access resources to other applications like Resolution Intelligence Cloud. A federated environment consists of the following components.
In our system, Resolution Intelligence acts as a service provider (SP)
The independent apps provide the services like
- Creating and maintaining user credentials and their profile information.
- Authenticating users through SSO to the Service Provider
Resolution Intelligence Could supports SAML 2.0 authentication via multiple identity providers (GSuite, Azure AD) and other native vendors like Okta, and Microsoft ADFS.
Supported Identity Providers
Resolution Intelligence Cloud supports a variety of external IDP vendors to facilitate SSO. The following IDPs are native to Resolution Intelligence Cloud that enable you to configure SSO.
In addition to the native apps, you can configure SSO through SAML 2.0 complaint vendors as well. The SAML 2.0 compliant vendors are:
Single Sign On (SSO)
Access resources of Resolution Intelligence Cloud using SSO credentials without having a direct account. SSO enables the following benefits.
- Reduces the number of attack surfaces as users login once in each day and use only one set of credentials.
- Users are not required to generate and remember credentials for each app.
- Saves time, improves security and reduces the fatigue.
Note: Single Sign On is available on all subscription plans (Foundation, Analytics, and Resolutions)
