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.
