Overview

This topic describes the SSO login workflow for users and administrators. 

Note: The workflow clarifies what you can expect when you use SSO for logging on to inSync Web or inSync Master Management Console. 

Workflow

Step Description
1. 

Administrators: In a web browser, type https://<inSyncMasterIPAddress>/admin

Users: In a web browser, type https://<inSyncMasterIPAddress>/home

First login

Note: If you are using SSO for your organization, you will omit this step. Instead, your inSync setup will follow the workflow for subsequent logins only. 

1 Administrators and users: Enter your e-mail address and leave the Password field blank.
2

Administrators: Using a SAML request, inSync Master redirects you to the authentication page provided by your organization's IdP.

Users: Using a SAML request, inSync Web redirects you to the authentication page provided by your organization's IdP.

3 Administrators and users: Type your SSO username and password on the login page. 
4 Your organization's IdP receives your credentials. 
5 If your credentials are validated, the IdP responds with a SAML assertion set to True. 
6

Administrators: inSync Master receives the SAML assertion.

Users: inSync Web submits the assertion to inSync Master.

7

Administrators and Users: inSync Master validates the SAML response and allows a login. 

Subsequent logins
1 Administrators and users: Enter your e-mail address and leave the Password field blank.

Your IdP validates your credentials against the values in its database.

5

Administrators: inSync Master receives the SAML assertion.

Users: inSync Web submits the assertion to inSync Master.

6

Administrators and Users: inSync Master validates the SAML response and allows a login.
