Setting up Single Sign On

Single Sign On (SSO)




What is single sign on?

Single Sign On (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single_sign-on) is a feature that will allow end users to use their corporate credentials to sign into TrackVia. It means your patrons will need to remember and manage one less password, and it will give administrators better access control to TrackVia.

Please contact the TrackVia Support team if you are interested in utilizing the SSO feature.

How does an Admin Setup SSO?


Super Admins can find the SSO setup page by going to the user menu and selecting My Account.  Here, you will see a tab labeled Single Sign On



This page provides what is needed on TrackVia's end to enable SSO -- you can download our metadata your Identity Provider requires, enter your Identity Provider Entity ID and upload their metadata.  You will also find a couple of settings you will want to review:

1.  Only Allow Single Sign On Authentication 

2.  Unknown users will be automatically added to TrackVia 

When setting up SSO using SAML, you will need to use this ACS URL: https://go.trackvia.com/saml/sso

What’s the User Experience for End Users?

A user will need to access the account's TrackVia subdomain to utilize SSO.  In this example, end users are authenticating through Google, i.e. with their Google credentials:
