Single Sign-On Overview

Manage single sign-on access for your users

What is single sign-on?

Single sign-on (SSO) lets a user 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 log on to your application, and if you’ve set them up with BlueSnap’s Single Sign-On token, they can connect with BlueSnap from within your application.
  • Users who administer multiple accounts can log on to their account and see all the accounts they manage.

Benefits

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

Setting up single sign-on

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

Manage multiple accounts

Now you can access all linked accounts through a single sign-on, as follows:

  1. Sign in to the account.
  2. Choose Settings > Access Multiple Accounts.
    The list of all linked accounts is presented.
  3. To access any account, click Log-in.
