Users can access Singular with corporate credentials if SAML-based Single Sign-on (SSO) is configured for their account. SSO is the general term for various methods that allow users to access multiple applications from a single authorization point, which is managed by an identity provider (IDP). Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML 2.0) is the leading standard for handling the authentication and authorization process that allows Singular to use the IDP for.
Singular doesn't receive or send any passwords during the authorization process. Instead, it receives a digitally signed SAML token, which is valid for a limited period of time.
Logging Into Singular with SSO
To access Singular via SSO:
- At the bottom of the Login page, click Log in with Single Sign-on.
- Enter the email address used for accessing your corporate SSO identity, and then click Log in with Single Sign-On.
- If you are already logged in to your corporate SSO, Singular will immediately redirect you to the Singular Dashboard. Otherwise, you will be prompted to log in first using your corportate credentials, and then you will get redirected to the Singular dashboard.
When an employee is removed from your company directory, they will no longer be able to access Singular however their data and custom configuration will remain. An account administrator can remove them from Singular from the Manage Team page under Settings.
