You can configure authentication using SAML to provide Single Sign-On (SSO) and Auto-Provisioning capabilities for Normal and Executive user types on your system. Other account types such as VidyoRoom, VidyoPanorama, Admin, and Operator must be manually provisioned.
Once configured, SAML authentication will let your users log in and create Vidyo accounts on-the-fly based on authorized credentials from a SAML Identity Provider (IdP).
SAML 2.0 functionality operates in browser-based application environments and is not currently supported on VidyoMobile or VidyoRoom. You cannot use more than one IdP for a given tenant. However, multiple tenants can use the same IdP. Where Are You From (WAYF) services are not supported at this time.
When you configure your VidyoPortal tenant for SAML authentication, your VidyoPortal uses the SAML 2.0 protocol to externally authenticate your Vidyo users against your SAML server. Normal or Executive user types can be authenticated by SAML.
When SAML authentication is enabled, the User and Admin Portals do not show Change or Forgot Password options.
You must first choose and configure your user provisioning model before deploying your tenants SP metadata to your IdP. The following topics explain how you can configure your VidydoPortal tenant to manually or automatically provision your users.
