SAML SSO Overview

This section describes how you can enable SAML Single Sign-On (SSO) for your organization in ConfigCat.

SAML SSO allows your team members to sign up and log in to ConfigCat via their company accounts using your own Identity Provider (IdP).

Go to the Authentication Preferences page to set up SAML SSO. You need to be an organization admin to do this.


  • Verified domain
    In order to configure SAML, you have to verify the ownership of the domain that your company uses for email addresses. This step is required because, at the beginning of the login process, we use the user's email domain to select the appropriate SAML Identity Provider.
  • Identity Provider that supports SAML 2.0

Configure a SAML Identity Provider

We tested and validated the following SAML Identity Providers:


Other Identity Providers might also work with ConfigCat, if they support the SAML 2.0 protocol.

Supported SAML flows

  • Identity Provider initiated SSO
  • Service Provider initiated SSO

SAML Requirements

These are the Identity Provider configuration requirements for ConfigCat:

  • Name ID: ConfigCat only supports the email address in the NameID field.
  • Signature algorithm: ConfigCat only supports the RSA-SHA256 signature algorithm.
