Single-Sign-On Authentication (or SSO Authentication) allows you to log in to multiple applications using a single set of credentials. If your administrator has enabled or required SSO for your organization, you can use your company credentials to log in to Totango products.
- SSO allows your company to enforce sophisticated security policies, ensuring that users are only logging using authorized methods.
- SSO enable a centric and easy way to manage and control users authorization and permissions.
- Users no longer have to remember a separate username and password combination for each app they use.
- Users are maintaining a single set of credentials to all applications.
- As a user, I am able to login to Totango using my company credentials.
- As an admin, I am able to manage my company users in my company tools and application and have better control over user authentication.
- As an admin, I am able to define advanced security policies (like MFA) in my company IDP which users have to follow in all applications including Totango.
- As an admin, I can enforce SSO authentication on all users.

- If you are already a Totango user which was added to a new team, click the "Go to team..." button.
- On the account creation screen, log in using "My Company / SSO" button.
- You will be redirected to your identity provider page, if you are not already connected, enter your credentials
