What is SSO?
Single Sign-on (SSO) allows Gridly users to log in to Gridly via an identity provider (IDP) of their choice. This allows admin users to better manage team access and keeps information secure.
Before adding your SSO metadata (sign-in URL) via Security in Company Settings, you need to first retrieve it from your SSO identity provider, following one of the following articles:
