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 in your account.

See SAML single sign-on prerequisites.

Assign a manager the SAML permission

  1. Go to the user details page

    1. In the sidebar menu, click Account > Users.
    2. On the Users page, locate the user and click the user's Name link.
  1. 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've 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 unless you've configured SAML SSO for your account. If you check this box and SAML SSO is not configured, the user won't be able to sign in to their CertCentral account.

  1. Save changes

    When you are finished, click Update User.

What's next

The next time the manager signs in to their account, they will 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 to their account.

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