SAML SSO Introduction

Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an open-standard, XML-based format for exchanging authentication and authorization between an identity provider and a service provider. One of its advantages is that it makes single sign-on (SSO) possible between multiple online services.

This documentation walks you through setting up SAML 2.0- and SAML 3.0-based SSO between identity providers like Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services 2.0 or 3.0 (MS-AD FS 2.0 or MS-AD FS 3.0), Okta, or PingOne and Adaptive Insights.

If you would like to configure SAML 2.0- or SAML 3.0-based SSO with another Identity Provider, you will follow steps similar to the ones listed. However, you will need to ensure that your Identity Provider supports SAML 2.0 or SAML 3.0 and either Identity Provider Initiated SSO or Service Provider Initiated SSO (these are the modes supported by Adaptive Insights Authentication).

This documentation also walks through how to set up SAML SSO so that Workday users who are also Adaptive Insights users can click a Workday Worklet and automatically log into Adaptive Insights.
