StatusGator supports enterprise Single Sign On (SSO) using the Security Assertion Markup Language (SSO). SAML is an open standard for exchanging authentication and authorization data between parties. SAML requires an identity provider (in this case, Azure) and a service provider, in this case StatusGator.  


StatusGator SAML SSO has the following benefits:

  • Users have have a single identity managed by your SAML Identity Provider.
  • One click access to StatusGator from your Identity Provider dashboard.


Note: Currently StatusGator only supports service provider initiated single sign on with Azure.  Identity provider initiated single sign on is not supported.  Users will need to be invited to StatusGator by their Organization Admin using their email address before being able to use single sign on.
