- Activate single sign-on (SSO)
- Modify SSO settings for your account
Looking to enable SSO for an Enterprise customer? Contact your friendly local customer success manager who can enable SSO.
Optimizely lets you implement Single Sign-On (SSO) through SAML 2.0, an open standard data format for exchanging authentication and authorization information. This allows your team to log in to Optimizely using their existing corporate credentials. SSO is an account-level feature that will apply across all projects and experiments.
Optimizely SSO is available for Azure Active Directory (AD). See the detailed tutorial on the Azure AD and Optimizely integration here.
Once SSO is enabled, all users will have to log in via SSO. The ability to log in with an email and password will be disabled.
To access SSO settings, go to Account Settings by logging in to Optimizely.
In Optimizely, navigate to Account Settings> Security and Privacy. You'll need to contact your CSM or support to enable SSO.
If you already have enabled SSO in Optimizely, follow these steps to sign in to your Optimizely account:
- From the sign-in page, click Log in using SSO.
- You’ll be redirected to the SSO page, where you’ll enter an Optimizely-recognized email address, which is authenticated by your Identity Provider.
- If your email is recognized as a user with an SSO who has permissions on any account, you will be challenged for your credentials by your Identity Provider. This step is skipped if you already have a session open.
Additional SSO Identity Providers
Accounts can also have up to 2 additional Identity Providers tied to an account. Users connecting through the additional Identity Providers will need to sign in directly from their Identity Provider. They will not be able to sign in from https://app.optimizely.com/signin/sso.
Set up any additional Identity Provider(IdP) in Auth0 and enter the name of the connection under the "Secondary Connection Names" box in the success board.
