Log in with SSO

If your administrator has configured SSO between an identity provider (IdP) and Virtana Platform, then all users must log in to Virtana Platform using SSO. When you log in, Virtana Platform verifies your identity and checks with your IdP to authenticate you before providing access to Virtana Platform. SSO can only be used with Virtana Platform accounts that have an appropriate license.

Users must be invited to Virtana Platform by someone who already has administrator privileges on the platform.

All user accounts in Virtana Platform are based on email addresses. So you must use your email address to log in to the platform.
