SAML Single Sign-On

If your company uses an identity provider like Okta or OneLogin, your IT department will want to configure SAML.

SAML lets you manage Members of your Team through your identity provider and gives you more control over who has access to your Maxihost dashboard.

Authenticating with SAML

Once you have configured SAML, your team members can use SAML SSO to log in. Type your email address on the authentication page and the "Continue with SAML SSO" button will become available.

If you are already logged in to your identity provider, you will be automatically logged into your Maxihost. If not, you will be redirected to your identity provider to finish authenticating. SAML SSO sessions last for 24 hours.
