Configure SSO in Virtana Platform

To configure SSO in Virtana Platform, you simply have to enter the identity provider (IdP) SSO metadata URL that is viewable in your IdP account. This URL accesses SAML metadata XML files that allow the IdP and service provider (SP) to share configuration information.

About This Task

The domain used in the administrator's email address is the domain that the SSO account is bound to in Virtana Platform. All users with the same domain as the administrator will be redirected to the IdP when they log in.


  • You must have an Administrator role in Virtana Platform to perform this task.


    If you have configured a custom subdomain as part of white labeling rebranding of Virtana Platform, you must login using that custom subdomain before configuring SSO.

  • You must have configured a Virtana Platform application in your IdP account and made a note of the IdP metadata URL.

  • You must have an administrator role with credentials-based login to Virtana Platform.


  1. Log in to Virtana Platform, click the Settings sprocket and select Login & Permissions.
