Today we're excited to announce the official release of our Single Sign-On (SSO) feature, another highly-requested feature from our "most wanted" list 👍.
SSO is particularly helpful if many of the users of your Skedda account have email addresses on the same domain (e.g. yourorganization.com) and you wish to allow them to use their existing organizational login to access Skedda. This is very convenient and great for security, because users don't have to setup additional credentials and automatically lose access when they leave your organization.
Skedda supports the authentication and auto-registration of users through SSO "Identity Providers" with a SAML 2.0 option. The vast majority of Identity Providers support this, including:
- Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AD) / Office 365
- (…and many more)
You'll find the relevant settings area in Settings => SSO. Before you can actually configure SSO on your venue account, just note that you need to have your subscription upgraded by Skedda support. Please contact our support team to request this (you can do this directly from the settings page mentioned above as well).
If you'd like to have a read of the details, we have comprehensive support documentation on this new feature here.
Our support team looks forward to hearing from you if you're interested in SSO!
