Manage SAML-Based Connections

The Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an open source standard for transmitting authentication information between service providers and identity providers (IdPs). SOTI Identity supports SAML v2.0. You can connect a third-party SAML-based IdP to SOTI Identity.

When you add another IdP to SOTI Identity, SOTI Identity delegates responsibility for the authentication and authorization of the user to the third-party IdP. When a user from a third-party IdP tries to access a SOTI ONE application (including SOTI Identity), SOTI Identity sends an authentication request to the third-party IdP (OneLogin, Okta or so on) who identifies the user and returns a response to SOTI Identity to either approve or deny access.

Third-party IdPs may also initiate authentication and authorization. Users can launch SOTI Identity directly from the third-party's portal to log into SOTI Identity.

You can integrate the following IdPs with SOTI Identity:

  • Google Workspace
  • Okta
  • OneLogin
  • Shibboleth
