SAML single sign-on (SSO) gives users access to Crowdin Enterprise through an identity provider (IDP) of your choice.
The benefits of SAML authentication include:
Standardization: SAML is a standard format that allows seamless interoperability between systems, independent of implementation.
Improved user experience: Users can access Crowdin Enterprise using your organization’s identity provider, without additional authentication, allowing to use only one set of login details.
Increased security: SAML is a security standard for logging into applications, which provides a single point of authentication keeping user credentials within the firewall boundary.
As soon as you’ve configured your identity provider, an Organization admin can enable the SAML SSO feature in Crowdin Enterprise Organization Settings.
Set the preferred advanced settings depending on the configurations on the IDP side and click Save.
You’re also able to change the name of the SAML authentication method (displayed on the login page) to the preferred one.
Any users already logged in after you’ve set up and enabled the SAML SSO will remain logged in. Further on, users that chose SAML as their login method will log into your Crowdin Enterprise organization with their IDP account. In case in your organization there is no account for some user, an account will be created automatically during the login process into your Crowdin Enterprise organization.
