How to Enable SSO for Your Organization

If your Identity Provider is not listed above, the self-serve option is not available.

However, you can select Other in the drop-down to initiate the SSO implementation by coordinating with Quantum Workplace's team. 

If you select Other, Quantum Workplace requires the contact information for your organization's point-of-contact, your Identity Provider, and a URL for your organization's metadata. 

Click Next Step to continue.

Step 2: Send QW Your Metadata

After selecting your Identity Provider, upload a file of your metadata by clicking Browse Files and selecting the metadata file. 

Upload your file and click Next Step to continue. 

Step 3: Name ID Configuration

With your metadata in place, specify the unique identifier used when configuring SSO for your organization. The chosen identifier is used to verify that a user is active and authorized on the organization's side. 

Click and expand the Name ID Configuration drop-down to select the identifier.

EmployeeID is recommended as the value is consistent and typically doesn't change.

Step 4: SSO Configuration Review

In the final step, verify your SSO configuration. This includes confirming your Identity Provider and its unique identifier.

Click Activate SSO.

 

Mission Accomplished modal will appear when your SSO has been successfully established. If an error occurs, these will be listed and should be addressed by your IT team to make the necessary corrections.
