Single Sign-On Overview

Manage single sign-on access for your users

What is single sign-on

Single sign-on (SSO) allows your users to sign on with one set of credentials and gain access to multiple applications and services.

Why is single sign-on important

Repeated sign-on requests are a hassle. As a business owner, you want to create a user experience that's simple for all who interact with you online, and single sign-on can help. Users can login to your application, and if you’ve set them up with BlueSnap’s Single Sign-On token, they will be able to connect with BlueSnap from within your application.

Benefits

  • Your users stay on your site avoiding the BlueSnap login page
  • Your users have fewer passwords to remember
  • You will be able to manage who uses the BlueSnap Console; for example, by setting up User Permissions

Setting up single sign-on

To enable single sign-on, you will generate SSO tokens for your users via the Generate SSO Token API and this token will provide access to the BlueSnap Console from your environment.
