Set Up Single Sign-On (SSO)

Parse.ly offers a couple of options for securing your organization’s account with single sign-on. Single sign-on can enable you to manage account permissions through your identity management service.

Note: Users must exist in Parse.ly Dash to use single sign-on. The use of SSO enables the management of existing account permissions but does not substitute account creation for Parse.ly Dash.

Google Authentication

Organizations using Gmail can force users to log in with their Google accounts.

  1. In User Management, click Authentication Settings.
  2. Select Google Authentication from the drop down.
  3. Click Save.

Third-party Authentication

Organizations can integrate Parse.ly with third-party identity providers like Okta or OneLogin using SAML 2.0.

  1. In User Management, click Authentication Settings.
  2. Select “Parse.ly password or Identity management service” or “Other Identity management service” from the drop down. We recommend initially selecting the former, and then switching over to the latter once you’ve verified the identity management service is working.
  3. Copy metadata from your identity provider and paste it into the text box.
  4. Click Save.

If you run into any issues integrating your identity provider, shoot us an email at support@parsely.com.

Thanks, we will be in contact shortly.
