Authenticate to CloudCannon using SAML

CloudCannon is set up as a Service Provider (SP) to allow Single Sign On (SSO) for your organization. To use this feature, you need to be on our enterprise plan and already have your own Identity Provider (IdP).

Configuring SAML

Note

SAML can be a tricky thing to configure with only one end of debugging. If you would prefer manual assistance with setting up, please contact support.

To configure SAML with your IdP you will need the following details:

  • SAML 2.0 Endpoint (HTTP)
  • Issuer
  • X.509 Certificate
Note

The issuer is configurable to allow multiple organizations from the same IdP. It must start with cloudcannon.com/. Leaving this blank will configure it as cloudcannon.com.

To add these details:

  1. Go to Organization Settings / SAML
  2. Fill in all of the fields available and submit the form
