What is Single Sign On (SSO)?
Using SSO means that you can use credentials from another application that you have previously signed up for, saving you time and the hassle of remembering multiple different sets of login details. We currently offer three different methods of single sign on:
You can sign in to your portal using the sign in with LinkedIn option. This will then redirect you to the LinkedIn login page where you will have to sign in using your LinkedIn account details. It will then sync the details from LinkedIn, and they will become your Clinked details as well. Once you log in once, you won’t have to again as Clinked will remember your details for you.
SAML Active Directory
Active directory single sign on is a feature available only to premium package members. This method is well suited to larger company’s who use lots of different applications within their organization. It will use your company’s active directory by sending an SAML request to your IdP, the request is then authorised by the IdP, and an SAML response is sent back to Clinked so that you can log in.
How does it work?
The diagram below shows how the SAML Active Directory SSO process works within Clinked:
How do I turn off the Google and LinkedIn Single Sign On feature?
If you would like to remove the options of signing in with Google and LinkedIn from your portal’s login page, the account administrator can do this easily by going to Account Settings > Branding, then check the box Don’t show Google and LinkedIn buttons on the sign in page. This will then remove any option of signing in via Google or LinkedIn for all members of your Clinked portal.
