Silverback speaks Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0 protocol, which allows the usage of external identity providers to login to Silverback Self Service and Administrator pages.
SAML 2.0 is an XML-based protocol that uses security tokens that contain assertions to pass information about a user between a SAML identity provider and a SAML service provider. SAML SSO works by transferring the user's identity from one place (the identity provider) to another (the service provider). This is done through an exchange of digitally signed XML documents. Consider the following scenario:
You have an identity provider in place, for example Matrix42 MyWorkspace or Azure Active Directory and you want to login with the stored identities in any of these tenants.
The following chapters handles about the integration of MyWorkspace, Azure Active Directory and Google, but you can use any provider which uses the SAML2 protocol. To work with any of these SAML2 providers you'll need to configure first your Identity Provider, then add the information or metadata into Silverback and configure the SAML2 login options.
