Single sign-on (SSO)
Single sign-on (SSO) authentication is a form of external authentication that allows users to forego the typical account creation process and log in to V‑Spark using their SSO identity provider (IDP). A single V‑Spark system can support multiple companies, and each company uses its own SSO configuration.
The following is a general workflow for configuring and using SSO with V‑Spark:
- Configure the IDP to communicate with V‑Spark. This requires the creation of a client application for V‑Spark on the IDP using the values specified in V‑Spark's
pref_portsystem configuration settings to create sign-in and sign-out redirect URIs. Refer to Configuring SSO for V‑Spark for more details.
- Configure the V‑Spark system to communicate with the IDP. This requires some information from the IDP configuration. Refer to Configuring SSO for V‑Spark for more details.
- Create a V‑Spark company with the Enable SSO option enabled. Refer to Create or modify a company and SSO-Enabled Companies for more details.
- Create, configure, and verify SSO-based user accounts. User accounts created with SSO must be verified and have their read and write permissions set by an administrator before they can be used.
