Please note that SSO is currently in BETA.

This article gives you an overview of VidMob's SSO authentication process, which uses Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML 2.0). Configuring SSO enables anyone in your organization to log in to VidMob with their regular credentials using your chosen identity provider.

Requirements

  • Configuring SSO requires someone who has access to your organization’s identity provider settings, which is typically an IT Admin.

  • This configuration requires that the person in your organization who will be configuring SSO be an Organizational Admin on the primary workspace of your organization.

  • This configuration requires that you trade metadata with VidMob.

  • Please ensure that your SAML server supports the attribute mappings below. Only email is required but family_name and given_name are highly recommended.

Ready? Follow these 4 steps.


Step 1: Access

  • Click the "Workspace" app on the homepage

  • Click on the "Security" button

Step 2: Set Up

  • Upload or manually enter your identity provider’s metadata

  • Copy the links provided to your identity provider

Step 3: Test

  • Click "Test connection"

  • When you are in the testing phase, everyone in your organization will have the option to sign in through SSO or with a password



Step 4: Configure

  • After testing is successful, click "Configure SSO"

  • At this point, everyone in your organization will be required to login through SSO




After configuring, the ability to “Remove SSO” will become available. Clicking "Remove SSO" will apply the change across your entire organization.

Since we anticipate clients taking measures like 2FA to safeguard their internal logins, we haven't incorporated 2FA into the VidMob platform for our SSO clients.


Note: If your organization spans multiple email domains or collaborates with partners across various domains, setting up SSO for each domain requires creating or navigating to different workspaces within your Organization. Repeat these steps in each workspace to support additional domains. While configuration details reside within individual workspaces, the SSO connection ensures seamless access for users across your entire organization, irrespective of their workspace assignments.
