If you would like to use SSO, please contact Support to enable the feature.
Single sign-on (SSO) enables you to use a single identity provider (IdP) to manage access to Samsara. Unlike standard authentication, users don't need to remember a separate password to manually log in to Samsara and can use their corporate login.
Because IT Admins manage sensitive login information through one IdP system, using SSO reduces the security risk footprint. You can manage federated identity using either Google Authentication or a third-party SSO provider (for example, Okta or Azure).
To set up SSO, you generate and download a SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) certificate from your IdP. The certificate is an X. 509 signing certificate used to encrypt and digitally sign the SAML assertions used in the SSO process. You then upload the certificate to the SSO configuration in the Samsara dashboard.
Periodically, you will need to renew the x.509 certificate. To prevent access disruption due to an expired certificate, it is recommended to generate and replace the certificate before it expires. For more information, see Renew an x.509 Certificate.
If you use Okta as your IdP, you can set authentication in Samsara to use your Okta user accounts.
Select the Settings icon ( ) at the bottom of your Fleet menu to view dashboard settings.
Select Single Sign-On.
Select New SAML Connection.
Enter the sign-in endpoint URL and x.509 certificate for your Okta. You can find this in the Okta Dashboard.
Save your settings.
Samsara supports integration with Azure. For instructions on integrating Azure as your IdP, see Tutorial: Azure Active Directory single sign-on (SSO) integration with Samsara.
