|Single Sign-on Login|
Since 5.2.0, CloverDX supports single sign-on (SSO) by the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 protocol. To use SSO, check the Use CloverDX Server single sign-on option. Once selected, a new option appears which allows you to log in as different user if checked; if unchecked, CloverDX Designer attempts to log in using credentials of the last signed-in user.
Note that if you use the SSO login option, you will be redirected to the identity provider's sign-in page.
For more information, including configuration properties for setting up SAML, see the section Administration > Users and Groups > SAML Authentication in the CloverDX Server documentation.
You can verify the validity of the connection using thebutton.
Once a connection to the CloverDX Server is established, continue with the next step.
