SSO in Virtana Platform

Virtana Platform supports SAML 2.0 SSO.

If SSO is enabled for an organization, Virtana Platform enforces SSO. When the user enters a username on the login page, Virtana determines if SSO is enabled. The user is authenticated against Virtana Platform and then directed to an appropriate sign-in page.

If users were onboarded prior to SSO enablement, they are still required to use SSO.

An administrator role with credentials-based login is required to set up SSO in Virtana Platform.

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.


If an administrator who was onboarded using SSO disables or removes the organization’s SSO configuration, they will no longer be able to log in. In this case, they will have to contact Virtana Platform Support to establish a set of credentials.

The process for inviting new users to Virtana Platform is the same whether using SSO or password authentication. That is, any existing user in Virtana Platform can invite a new user. The invited user receives an email from Virtana with a clickable link to access the Virtana Platform login screen. However, the login screen is different, based on authentication method.
