Here are the instructions on how to set up your company with SSO on Knak using SAML 2.0 for your account:

  1. Go to the Admin panel and go to settings

  2. Find the SSO section and where it says “Enable SSO” click on the configure button

    1. Don’t see this section? Contact your Customer Success Manager to enable it for you!

  3. Copy the information provided on the setup page and use it to create a new app/connection on your SSO provider

    1. Make sure to set the Application Username Format to Email

  4. After the app is created, retrieve the Identity Provider Single Sign-On URL and X.509 Certificate from the app and enter it into the corresponding fields on the “Set Up SSO” page

    Not sure what these fields mean and where to find them? Check out our help doc

  5. Press save

  6. A notification should pop up saying the connection was successfully created and a toggle button should now appear on the page

    1. This toggle button allows you to enable and disable SSO for your organization

Some additional information

  1. Users must be added within Knak to use the platform. IdP-initiated user provisioning is not currently supported.

  2. When you successfully have SSO working, we will enable user creation without sending invites. If you need to add users in bulk please contact us and we will happily assist you.

  3. Both IdP and SP initiated authentication are supported for SSO users. Either sign in using the Knak tile on your Identity Provider or use the SSO button on the login page and provide your email address to sign in
