Add a SAML SSO-only or a SAML SSO account user

Before you begin

  • Be an admin in your account
  • Have SAML enabled for your account
  • Have the user's information: Name, email, phone and job title
  • For accounts with divisions, what divisions to assign them to (all, one, etc.)

See SAML single sign-on prerequisites.

Add a SAML SSO user

  1. Go to the Add User page

    1. In the sidebar menu, click Account > Users.
    2. On the Users page, click Add User.
  1. Fill in the user's details

    In the User details section, enter the user's information.

Do you want the user to be a verified contact for EV SSL or Code Signing certificate orders? Make sure to provide their phone number and job title.

  1. Fill in the user access details

    In the User Access section, verify the username and define what the user can access in your account.

    Things to note:

    • Only allow this user to log in through SAML SSO
      Check this box to restricts the user to Single Sign-on account access only.
    • Roles and the Allow access to SAML settings
      You can only assign the SAML permission to the Manager and Finance Manager roles
  1. Create the user account

    When you are finished, click Add User.

What's next

Users who aren't restricted to Single Sign-on account access will be sent an email with instructions for completing their account setup and signing in.

SAML SSO-only users will be sent an email with the custom SSO URL for signing into their account. They can also access the custom SSO URL from the DigiCert Account Login page.

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