Single Sign-On with SAML2

  • Last updated on
Notes
  • These configurations can only be performed by Security Awareness Training administrators who have been granted the Single Sign On - Can Manage All privilege. For information on granting this privilege to one or more administrators, refer to User Management.
  • These configurations affect users of Security Awareness Training, not end users who receive training and other content through Security Awareness Training campaigns.

Important It is your responsibility to make sure that your identity provider will only authenticate and authorize users that should have accounts in the Security Awareness Training system.

As described in Single Sign-On Single Sign-On (SSO) enables users to log into Security Awareness Training using your organization's common authentication service. 

This optional SSO solution is implemented with the SAML2 specification.  

Just In Time Provisioning

Some Security Awareness Training administrators prefer not to create all users manually. Just In Time (JIT) provisioning enables new users to log in without an account, then the system creates an account automatically. 

Just In Time provisioning, described in the steps below, is not required for Single Sign-On functionality. However, if you want to use Just In Time provisioning, you must enable SSO. 

Notes for Just In Time Provisioning
  • If you change the default permissions, it will affect new users going forward, but will not retroactively change permissions of accounts already created through SSO. If you want to change permissions for a user account, you must go to System > User Manager, regardless of how the account was created.
  • If you change the default permissions, it will affect new users going forward, but will not retroactively change permissions of accounts already created through SSO. If you want to change permissions for a user account, you must go to System > User Manager, regardless of how the account was created.
Important Information for Just In Time Provisioning

It is your responsibility to change the configuration for new users if you do not want new users to have administrative privileges.

By default, new administrative users are added as members of the following groups

  • Campaign Administrative
  • Everyone - All Users Must Be In This Group

If you want all new users to be able to manage administrative users, select the following, additional group:

  •  Client User Administrator - Can Manage All Client Users

    • Configuration Description – Optional description of the configuration record. It is not part of the SAML2 configuration itself.

    • Enable JIT Provisioning – Used only if you are also configuring Just In Time Provisioning.

  4. Click Save
  5. The following steps describe the option of setting up Just In Time Provisioning. To bypass these steps, continue below with Step 9.

    When the page refreshes, click Security Group Configuration
  7. On the  SAML Provisioning Group Manager page, the Campaign Administrator and Everyone - All Users Must Be In This Group checkboxes are selected by default, giving all new users Administrative privileges.
