SSO (or single-sign-on) provides EdApp with the ability to identify users through an external Identity Provider (IDP). This enables a user to log in to multiple systems via a single portal.
What is it again?
SSO (or single-sign-on) provides EdApp with the ability to identify users through an external Identity Provider (IDP).
You can register your users via invite links, codes or invitation email. But with SSO, users are directed to their company identity portal, fill in their company login details to authenticate into EdApp. Users can then log in to multiple systems via a single portal.
Q: If I configure SSO for my learners, what registration options do I have available?
Depending on how you choose to configure SSO, learners can register by downloading EdApp, tapping SSO, and then entering a Business ID or email address (domain recognition).
Q: Does EdApp support SSO?
Yes! To find out more about how your organization can leverage this feature, you can check out these articles on authentication and users through the API to help you!
We support SSO with SAML based systems like:
This can be configured via the Admin portal in EdApp (https://admin.edapp.com).
Q: If SSO is not an option, does EdApp offer any other methods to authenticate users?
If SSO is not an option, we support getting a temporary token through the API which can be passed in the URL to authenticate the user. This token is valid for a limited amount of time. See API Documentation for more info.
