👑 Single Sign On is a Premium feature
What is SSO?
Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication method used by companies to centrally manage programs employees access. Using an SSO provider, IT admins can control in one place who can access any services used by the company .
This is ideal for IT admins to onboard new employees, as it provides them with instant access to multiple software services (avoiding the need to register new employees to these systems one by one). Off-boarding of employees is also simplified as you can revoke access from all systems in one place.
Employees benefit as they can access all the programs they need using just one set of credentials.
How does TravelPerk support SSO?
TravelPerk supports SSO using the SAML 2.0 protocol.
When an employee tries to sign in via SAML:
- We will try to authenticate against your SAML identity provider
- If the employee is already authenticated in your SAML identity provider, they will have direct access to TravelPerk.
- Otherwise, they will need to authenticate first in your SAML identity provider to get access to TravelPerk.
Please note: For now, we will only let employees who have an existing user account in TravelPerk access the platform. If the employee doesn't have a TravelPerk account, we will not create it automatically in TravelPerk after the first successful authorization in your SAML identity provider.
SAML 2.0 is supported by all major 3rd party identity providers like Okta, Google Suite, LastPass, OneLogin, Azure, JumpCloud.
How can I setup SSO for my company?
You need to have a Premium subscription to setup SSO., contact your account manager to start the process.
We will then come back to you with the setup instructions for your SAML identity provider.
How can employees access TravelPerk via SSO?
As soon as we finish the SSO setup, your company will have a new dedicated sign in page, such as 'acme.travelperk.com'.
Within this page, employees will have the option to sign in to TravelPerk using SSO.
