You can choose to enable SAML 2.0 Single Sign-On for your staff, allowing them to log in to Felix using their single set of corporate credentials.

What is SAML?

Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an open standard for passing information between an authorisation provider and a service. In plain English, this allows a single user to use the same log in credentials from a provider to log into multiple websites.

SAML facilitates the ability for organisation users to log in using Single Sign-On (SSO) to the Felix portal. This provides greater security and control when authenticating users, and the ability to restrict users from logging in through the use of verified domains and provider-driven authentication groups.

Features we provide

Felix SAML provides your users the ability to do the following:

  • Log in using their corporate credentials
  • Automatically provision new user accounts when logging in for the first time

SAML integration can be achieved without the need for User Creation to be enabled on your account. If you have any questions regarding the configuration of SSO for your Felix account don't hesitate to reach out to our friendly support team.
