With class-level SSO authentication, students only need to remember the access credentials for their SSO identity provider. CloudShare does all the background work for matching each user sign on with the relevant class.
Using class-level SSO makes logging in to the training environment simpler, giving the entire training experience a better start. It also offers additional branding opportunities.
Class-level SSO connections are available only when pre-configured for your account. Contact your CloudShare support representative for setup.
A user with the appropriate Role permissions can enable SSO when creating or editing a class:
With class-level SSO enabled, students will receive an invitation link that takes them directly to the chosen SSO provider, where they log in:
After successful login to the organization SSO provider (for example Okta, as shown above), students are taken directly to their CloudShare environment, without the need to enter any additional credentials.
When required, CloudShare will verify that a student is actually registered for the class before sending them to the SSO provider.
Classes that use LTI-based access (LMS integration) will automatically authorize the students based on the LMS authorization.
