SSO for your Proof account lets you and all your teammates log into Proof using the credentials stored in your organization's SAML Identity Provider (IdP). Examples of IdPs include ActiveDirectory, Auth0, Google, and Okta. With SSO, account and credential management are not handled by Proof, but instead by your IdP.
- Users in your organization can log into Proof without needing to enter their password every time.
- SSO is compatible with parent/child org structures, allowing you to propagate certain teams/groups to a respective child org upon SSO login.
- Streamline new user onboarding with just-in-time user provisioning (JIT provisioning). Users will be created and updated automatically when they log in through SSO, allowing you to scale your operation with Proof faster.
- Once SSO is configured, users' former Proof account passwords will no longer work, unless they are organization admins.
- Users' former Proof account usernames will no longer work if those usernames do not match existing usernames in your organization’s IDP.
- This documentation assumes that you already have a SAML Identity Provider (IdP). If you do not have a SAML IdP, you can use any IdP that supports SAML 2.0 such as ActiveDirectory, Auth0, Google, and Okta.
- This documentation assumes you are on a "Pro" pricing tier. See our pricing page for more details.
To configure SSO on your Proof account, you'll need to provide Proof with the following information from your IdP:
- Entity ID
- Target URL
- X509 client certificate
You can enter these parameters individually, or provide a metadata file or metadata URL.
An organization admin can enable SSO and enter this information in Settings >> Team Security:
The IdP needs to be configured with the following Proof SAML data:
- Entity (or Issuer) ID: https://api.proof.com/saml/consume
- Assertion Consumer Service (ACS) URL: https://api.proof.com/saml/consume
- SP metadata URL: https://api.proof.com/saml/metadata
- Also available as a file
The IdP test environment needs to be configured with the following Proof SAML data:
- Entity (or Issuer) ID: https://api.fairfax.proof.com/saml/consume
- Assertion Consumer Service (ACS) URL: https://api.fairfax.proof.com/saml/consume
- SP metadata URL: https://api.fairfax.proof.com/saml/metadata
- Also available as a file
These attributes are sent from the IdP to Proof, in order to provision accounts on-the-fly, assign specific roles (e.g. admin vs. team member), and create users in child organizations.
Keep in mind the following required attributes:
