SAML SSO gives users a centralized and secure way of controlling access to their organizations. When you join an organization that uses SAML SSO, you sign in through the organization's IdP, and your existing Survicate account is linked to an external identity that belongs to the organization.

Please note that this article is created for universal purposes. Once you need OneLogin or Okta help specifically, please visit specific links.

Getting started

📌Note: Before you start you need to make sure you are the owner of your organization. Only account owners can set up SAML Authentication.

Please go to Settings > 🔑SAML Authentication and click Enable SAML authentication toggle. Leave the tab open, as you'll need the data from here.

Step 1. Identity Provider (IdP) setup

In your Single Sign On provider, add a new app

Under SAML Settings, you will likely be asked to provide Single-sign-on URL /ACS (Consumer) URL and Audience URI.

You can find Single sign on URL under ACS (Consumer) URL in Survicate:

While Audience URI is the same URL, but it has a different ending with /metadata instead of /acs.
So if your Single sign on URL or ACS (Consumer) URL is:

Your Audience URI will be:

In the end, your settings should look like this:

Step 2. Survicate setup

Go to the SSO provider's configuration page with Single Sign-On URL, Provider Issuer and X.509 Certificate:

In Survicate SAML Authentication tab paste the Provider Issuer to Issuer field, Single Sign-On URL to Sign on URL and X.509 Certificate to Public certificate.

Once you click "Save Configuration" you will get a list of recovery codes.

Please save them; you will need those to bypass the Single Sign-On when you don't have access to SAML provider anymore.
