Single sign-on is a process in which users log in once to an authentication provider that manages their user credentials.
Once logged in to that authentication provider, each subsequent log-in to an application that is connected to that provider is automatically handled by that system. This drastically reduces the number of times that users have to manually log in on a daily basis.
Implementing single sign-on in Enterprise can be beneficial for users who access Enterprise through various applications: Enterprise Server, Studio, and Smart Connection for InDesign and InCopy. Using SSO, they only have to log in once.
Single sign-on can be implemented in Enterprise by using one the following authentication providers:
- Okta. See Implementing single sign-on in Enterprise 10 using Okta.
- Amazon Cognito. See:
- Implementing single sign-on in Enterprise 10 using Amazon Cognito
- Implementing single sign-on in Enterprise 10 using Amazon Cognito with an external SAML identity provider
