SAML Authentication

Article Number:02034

Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an XML-based standard for exchanging authentication data between different security domains.
With SAML authentication enabled, users can single sign-on (SSO) into Kintone by using user accounts registered with your corporate identity provider (IdP).
Kintone supports SAML 2.0 and acts as a service provider (SP).

Steps to Configure SAML Authentication

To connect Kintone with the IdP through SAML authentication, you must configure both the IdP and Kintone by taking the following steps:

Registering information of Kintone with the IdP
Register the information required to configure Kintone as an SP with the IdP.
STEP1: Registering Kintone with the IdP
Configuring SAML Authentication for Kintone
On Kintone, enable SAML authentication and set the information of the IdP.
STEP 2: Configuring SAML Authentication for Kintone
Enabling to Use Only SAML Authentication When Logging In
If required, you can configure to use only SAML authentication when logging in to Kintone.
If this setting is enabled, users will not be able to log in to the service using password authentication.
STEP 3: Enabling to Use Only SAML Authentication When Logging In
