The Single Sign-On (SSO) feature allows to utilize the corporate identity provider that is already used by the company, such as Active Directory (AD) or ADFS, to access CloudMonix. In order to log in with SSO, the user simply provides their existing credentials (e.g. company email and password for AD), and is not asked for security codes.
CloudMonix supports integration with the following corporate identity providers:
SAMLP Identity Provider
Windows Azure AD
The SSO setup is done individually for every customer. To request it, open a support ticket with the CloudMonix team at http://support.cloudmonix.com/support/login. The support team will then provide a detailed guidance on configuring the specific identity provider.
SSO feature is available in Professional and Ultimate plans.
Once SSO is set up and identity trust is established, new enterprise users can be invited into the corporate CloudMonix account. A new invite can be sent using the User Management screen (Subscription Settings > User Management).
The email address in the invite has to be the same as used by the corporate identity provider.
Users that were registered with their corporate email address prior to enabling SSO will not be automatically migrated. In order to enable SSO usage for the existing user, open a support ticket with the CloudMonix team at http://support.cloudmonix.com/support/login.
CloudMonix doesn’t import settings from the corporate identity provider. The permissions for users that login with SSO are managed from the User Management screen, the same way as for other users.
