Edit a manager account and assign them the SAML permission

Before you begin

  • You must have SAML enabled for your account.

  • You must be an administrator.

See SAML certificate requests prerequisites.

Assign a manager the SAML permission

  1. Go to the user details page

    1. In the left main menu, click Account > Users.

    2. On the Users page, locate the user and click the user's Name link.

  2. Assign the SAML permission

    1. On the user's details page, in the User Access section, under selected role, check Allow access to the SAML settings.

    2. If you configured SAML SSO for your account and want to convert the manager to an SSO only user, check Only allow this user to log in through SAML SSO.


    Don't check Only allow this user to log in through SAML SSO until you've configured SAML SSO for your account. Checking this box when SAML SSO is not configured, blocks the user from signing in to their CertCentral account.

  3. Save changes

    When you are finished, click Update User.

What's next


Are you using an IdP initiated login URL to sign in to your CertCentral account? If you are, you must provide the new manager with this IdP initiated URL or application.

The next time the manager signs in to their account, they'll have access to the SAML features in your account.

If you opted to make the manager a SAML SSO-only user, they'll be sent an email with the custom SSO URL for signing in.
