Formstack now supports Single Sign On (SSO) Authentication on Enterprise Plans! When enabled, this feature gives Formstack Account owners the ability to allow access to their Formstack account using an external authentication provider. We currently support multiple external authentication provider protocols, and the setup of these protocols can be very technical.
To get started, log into to your account as an administrator and click on "My Account" > "Authentication"
Configure your Single Sign On settings. Links to documentation on how to set each of these up can be found below.
We allow multiple authentication providers on one account. This can be useful if you have multiple authentication sources or if you want to use multiple authentication provider settings on the same authentication provider. We will simply iterate through the available authentication provider until we've either checked them all, or we've successfully authenticated.
Password Authentication Providers: LDAP and Active Directory
These type of authentication providers collect a username and password through the normal Formstack login page and then use that username and password to authenticate with some external authentication source. These provide the most similar experience to logging into Formstack normally. LDAP Documentation, Active Directory Documentation
Redirect Authentication Providers (SAML 2.0, CAS)
This type of authentication provider provides a button on the Login page that will redirect the user to a third-party website to login and authorize Formstack to access their account. Once the user has logged in and possibly authorized Formstack, they are redirected back to Formstack and logged into their account. SAML 2.0 Documentation, CAS Documentation.
Next, add users in Formstack by clicking on the "Users" tab, then "New User". Your users (already set in Formstack) can now log in at your domain's login page with their SSO username and password: https://yoursubdomain.formstack.com/admin/user/login.
