Any IT administrator has the challenging and time-consuming task of managing user access, accounts and resetting password. With web applications the task becomes even more complex. A new employee means that a username and password needs to be created in all places the user is supposed to access. And when an employee leaves, it's equally important the access is revoked.

A secure and simple solution is for users to sign in once and then grant them access to any of the web applications without having to enter credentials again. You can configure login once you have access to the Panorama9 Dashboard or MSP Control Panel through the Single Sign-On extension.

Single Sign-On through SAML2.0

The Panorama9 Single Sign-On or SSO extension allows you to configure access to the Dashboard or MSP Control Panel using SAML 2.0 where any of the Identity Provider such as any of these will validate the user and grant access. We support any SAML 2.0 compatible Identity Provider.

From your SAML identity provider you need a SAML login URL and SHA-1 fingerprint which should be entered in the "Identity Providers login URL" and "Certificate fingerprint". The SAML login URL is invoked by the Panorama9 dashboard when attempting a remote authentication.

Single Sign-On for the Panorama9 Dashboard (direct customer)

To configure the Single Sign-On extension login into the Panorama9 Dashboard and navigate to "Manage" -> "Extensions" -> "Single Sign-On".

Single Sign-On for the Panorama9 MSP Control Panel (Managed Service Provider)
