Using single sign-on with Replicon

Looking for help with this feature in Polaris? Check out Using single sign-on with Replicon in the Polaris help.

Replicon currently offers the following single sign-on (SSO) options:

What is single sign-on?

Single sign-on (SSO) allows you to access two or more applications using one set of credentials. If you’re set up with SSO for Replicon, you’ll either log in using a link provided to you by your administrator, or you’ll sign in via our login page (typically by clicking a button for a third-party app) without entering any credentials.

Using SSO has several advantages, such as:

  • End users don’t need to remember a unique Replicon password, and don’t need to enter credentials when accessing Replicon
  • Managing passwords is faster and easier, since they can’t be lost and never need to be recovered
  • Enhanced security, since weak or insecure passwords are avoided

What is SAML?

Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is a standard that allows authentication credentials to be shared by multiple applications within a network. This allows you to access many applications under your network’s umbrella using one user name and password.

We support SAML 1.1 and SAML 2.0.  If you plan to use SAML 1.1, Replicon hosts an identity provider you can use.

If you use SAML with Replicon, users typically bypass the Replicon login page completely, and use a link or URL you provide them with to access Replicon without logging in.

What is OpenID Connect?

OpenID is an authentication standard used to create SSO solutions. In Replicon, our Google, Intuit, and ADP SSO options are based on this protocol. You can also create your own SSO solutions using any provider OpenID Connect supports.

Does Replicon Mobile support SSO?

Yes, you can use any method of SSO we support in our mobile app.
