About Single Sign-On (SSO)

Contentstack supports Single Sign-On (SSO). If your Contentstack organization is SSO-enabled, users can access the organization through your corporate identity provider credentials, instead of Contentstack account credentials. This eliminates the normal login process and enables faster and secure access to your apps.

Single Sign-On is a method that enables a particular system (usually the concerned organization’s identity provider) to authenticate users and subsequently inform Contentstack that the users have been authenticated. The users are then allowed to access their resources in Contentstack without having to sign in using Contentstack credentials.

Contentstack uses the most-commonly adopted SSO standard, i.e., Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0 (SAML 2.0). Consequently, our SSO implementation can be integrated with any well-known identity provider (IdP) that supports SAML 2.0.

Note: SSO can only be set up by the owner of an organization.
