Setting Up SSO


Admin of an IDrive 360 account can configure SSO by signing in to a central identity provider. To set up a SSO, the admin needs to:


Configure identity provider

Standard Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 is one of the standards used to configure SSO between IDrive 360 and IdP. For implementing SAML authentication, SAML URLs and Certificate are needed, which can be obtained from any supported IdP.

Once an admin registers with an IdP of their choice, they will receive the following:

  • IdP Issuer URL
    This URL uniquely identifies the application for which single sign-on is being configured.
  • Single Sign-On URL
    This URL processes an authentication request from the user's browser and returns an authentication response to verify the user.
  • X.509 certificate (Base64)
    An X.509 certificate is a security certificate that you receive from your identity provider to verify your identity. It comes in different formats, but IDrive 360 only accepts .pem or .cer format.

Configure your IDrive 360 account

Admin needs to provide the received SAML URLs and Certificate in the Single Sign-On section of IDrive 360.

To configure SSO,

  1. Sign in to your IDrive 360 account.
  2. Click the 'Go To Management Console' button.
  3. In the 'Settings’ tab, go to the 'Single Sign-On (SSO)' section.
  4. Enter the URLs and add the X.509 certificate received from your IdP.
    Note: X.509 certificate should only be in .pem or .cer format.
  5. Click 'Configure Single Sign-On'.

You will receive an email when SSO is enabled.
