As a Beaconstac enterprise customer, you can now enable SSO login to Beaconstac right from the dashboard in five simple steps.

Beaconstac SSO uses SAML protocol which ensures that employees can use their organization credentials to securely login to Beaconstac from any device or location without compromising on security and identity.

NOTE - SSO Login is only available to users subscribed to the enterprise plan.

How to setup SSO login

Step 1 - Login to your Beaconstac dashboard, click on the profile icon on the top right and select ‘Account’.

Step 2 - Scroll down on the page that appears and select ‘Single Sign-On (SAML)’.

NOTE - This option is available only to the owner or administrators of the organization.

Step 3 - You will be given an audience and application callback URL in the window that appears. Login to your trusted identity provider and enter these details when prompted.

To create an IdP initiated SSO login, turn the switch on. You will then be given a login URL that you can enter into your Identity Provider.

NOTE - By default, Beaconstac provides SP-initiated login. This is because IdP initiated logins pose security risks. Make sure you understand the security risks before enabling IdP-initiated SSO.

Step 4 - Your Identity Provider will generate login and logout URLs, along with an X509 signing certificate. Enter these under ‘Service provider settings’. Note that entering a logout URL is not mandatory.

Step 5 - Once you’re confident that you’ve entered the correct details, turn on the ‘Enabled’ switch and click on ‘Save’.

NOTE - We recommend testing SSO login credentials before logging out as the admin. If the credentials are incorrect, a logged-out admin will not be able to log in again. Keep the admin tab open, and test the SSO login credentials by using SSO login in Incognito mode. Once you are confident that the details have been entered correctly, you can log out as admin and use SSO login in the future.
