Using SAML 2.0, organizations can integrate InEvent solution with their current enterprise federation. Login can be the same used on your central repository, which can be any SAML 2.0 protocol solution, including Microsoft AD or Amazon IAM. Authentication occurs using encrypted connections and is limited to your organization specific endpoint.
What is Single Sign-On?
Single sign-on (SSO) is an authentication method that allows a user to securely 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.
How do I configure SSO integration?
- First of all, you'll need to whitelist your domain. To whitelist a domain, please contact InEvent via issue report. When sending your request, select Question as the type. Click here for further information.
They will add the whitelisted domains on the Company > Details page under Whitelisted domains.
- Once the domains have been added to the system, we'll generate a DNS setting that you will need to add to your domain so we can verify it. After the verification, it will show Verified on the left-hand side.
- Now, you can go to Integrations > SSO > and insert the parameters below into the corresponding fields:
- Issuer URL;
- SAML 2.0 Endpoint (HTTP);
- SLO Endpoint (HTTP);
- X-509 Certificate.
Then, press the blue button Save Settings.
How do I copy the correct X-509 Certificate?
You can access the information by clicking on Get metadata.
Login for event organizers
If SSO is enabled, event organizers with administrator permissions should see this screen when trying to log in to the platform.
Once they press Login, they will be taken to the SSO portal. Now, insert a username, password information and press Continue to finish the login process and access the platform.
Login for attendees
If SSO is enabled, attendees should see this screen when trying to log in to the Virtual Lobby.
Once they press Login, they will be taken to the SSO portal. Now, insert a username, password information and press Continue to finish the login process and access the Virtual Lobby.
How do I allow non-SSO login?
If you'd like to allow non-SSO login even when SSO is enabled and active, go to Account > Tools > press Edit > and scroll down until you see the Login section.
Now, make sure Allow non-sso login is enabled. By doing so, people that don't have the SSO login available will be able to access the platform using email and password information.
