DIY Single Sign-On (SAML2) now available for all Teams and Enterprises

Single Sign-On offers ease of use, faster access, and more security online. Up until today, you had to ask our support team to set it up. Finally, we’ve put this option in the hands of all team or Enterprise owners. Do It Yourself!

Three ways to access team portals

If you want to make a team page available to your team, you have three options:

  1. The team owner can invite people to become a member (For instructions, read this support article. )
    • Invite up to twenty team members by email (one by one, or in bulk).
    • Invitees still have to accept your invitation and create a start.me account.
  2. The team owner can whitelist an email domain (For instructions, read this support article.)
    • Grant automatic access to everyone on your email domain.
    • Users still need to create a start.me account and remember a start.me password to log in.
  3. Now, for an added layer of security, team owners can set up Single Sign-On themselves.
    • Grant automatic access to everyone with their regular work account.
    • No need to create a separate start.me account or remember a new password.

Why choose Single Sign-On?

Single Sign-On reduces the need to remember and store separate passwords, lowers the risk of compromising systems in case of a hack, and reduces support issues around login troubles.

In short, with Single Sign-On your team will save time getting where you want them to go.

You reduce friction, which generally leads to a higher performance, and better results.

How do I set it up?

Instructions:

  1. Open the ME menu (click profile picture) > Teams > Select your team.
  2. This opens the Team Admin page. Click Team Portal Login & SSO.
  3. Click Add to start the process of adding SSO for your team.
  4. Now select your IdP. We provide detailed instructions for ADFS (Microsoft)Jumpcloud, Okta, Onelogin, but you can configure any IdP of your choice.
  5. In the next sidebar, you’ll see three tabs:
    1. Set the IdP name and the logo.
    2. Copy the start.me data to your Single Sign-On solution.
    3. Setup SAML by uploading the XML file provided by your IdP provider.
  6. Click Save to confirm.

For detailed instructions, check our support section about Single Sign-On.

You can setup Single Sign-On right away. If you have any questions or need help with the SSO setup, please let us know at support@start.me. We will be happy to assist you in setting up SSO for your team.
