Egnyte Single Sign-On Integration

The Egnyte Single Sign-on (SSO) Integration creates a client application that uses Auth0 for authentication and provides SSO capabilities for Egnyte. Your users log in to Egnyte with Auth0 identity providers, which means the identity provider performs the identity credentials verification.


Before you begin:

  • Sign up for an Egnyte account.
  • Set up a connection, which is a source of users. Connections can be databases, social identity providers, or enterprise identity providers, and can be shared among different applications. You may set up more than one connection for use with SSO integrations.
  1. Navigate to Auth0 Dashboard > Applications > SSO Integrations, and click + Create SSO Integration. Create SSO Integration

  2. Select Egnyte. Select Service

  3. Click Continue to grant the integration access to the listed permissions. Authorize Service

Configure Auth0 SSO Integration

Enter a name for your SSO Integration, configure the following settings, and click Save.

Use Auth0 instead of the IdP to do Single Sign-on (SSO). **Legacy tenants only.** If enabled, Auth0 will handle SSO instead of Egnyte.
