Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is a standard for exchanging authentication data between an identity provider and a service provider. With SAML, users can use corporate credentials at a single point of authentication. There are two types of authentication flows. Automox-to-IDP and IDP-to-Automox.

Automox-to-IDP

The Automox-to-IDP authentication flow allows users to provide their email address from the Automox console login page, and be redirected to their configured Identity Provider (IDP) for authentication before being redirected back to the Automox Console as the expected user.

For Automox-to-IDP, follow these steps:

1. From the Settings > Security tab in your Automox console, go to the SAML tile.

2. Click Enable. This will disable 2FA, if enabled.

3. In the Setup SAML window, enter the following information that is provided by your Identity Provider: Entity ID, x509, Login URL.
4. Click Save.

IDP-to-Automox

The IDP-to-Automox authentication flow allows users to log into the Automox console directly from their IDP dashboard. This is a common flow in organizations that utilize more than one SSO-enabled service.

For IDP-to-Automox, follow these steps:

1. From the Settings > Security tab in your Automox console, go to the SAML tile.
2. Click Enable. This will disable 2FA, if enabled.
3. In the Setup SAML window, click Toggle XML.

4. Enter the XML Config information and click Save.

See SAML-Based Single Sign-On (SSO) for further details.
