Single Sign-On (SSO)

Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication process that allows a user to log in with a single ID and password to any of several related, yet independent, software systems. True single sign-on allows the user to log in once and access services without re-entering authentication factors. You can configure SSO for Turbonomic using any SAML 2.0-compliant SSO IdP (Identity Provider).

When SSO is enabled, Turbonomic only permits logins via the SSO IdP. Whenever you navigate to your Turbonomic installation, it redirects you to the SSO Identity Provider (IdP) for authentication before displaying the Turbonomic user interface. Before you enable SSO for your Turbonomic installation, you must configure at least one SSO user with Turbonomic Administrator privileges. If you do not, once you enable SSO, you will not be able to configure any SSO users in Turbonomic.
