Salesforce single sign-on with Auth0 lets users access your resources with one login
With single sign-on (SSO) and Auth0, users quickly access authorized Salesforce network resources with one login. Usernames and passwords are validated through Auth0 against your corporate user database rather than Salesforce managing separate passwords for each resource. SSO is available in both Salesforce Classic (not available in all orgs) and Lightning Experience.
Reduced administrative costs
With SSO, users memorize a single password to access network resources and external apps and Salesforce. With fewer passwords to manage, system admins receive fewer requests to reset forgotten passwords.
Users take an average of 5–20 seconds to log in to an online app without SSO. With SSO, manually logging into Salesforce is avoided, saved seconds reduce frustration and add up to increased productivity.
All password policies that you’ve established are in effect for Salesforce. Authentication credentials only valid for a single time also increases security for users with access to sensitive data.
The Salesforce Single Sign-on (SSO) Integration creates a client application that uses Auth0 for authentication and provides SSO capabilities for Salesforce. Your users log in to Salesforce with Auth0 identity providers, which means the identity provider performs the identity credentials verification.
Before you begin:
- Sign up for a Salesforce account.
- Set up a connection, which is a source of users. Connections can be databases, social identity providers, or enterprise identity providers, and can be shared among different applications. You may set up more than one connection for use with SSO integrations.
Configure Auth0 SSO Integration
Enter a name for your SSO Integration, configure the following settings, and click Save.
|Salesforce Domain||Your Salesforce Domain.|
|Entity ID||Arbitrary URL that identifies the Salesforce resource.|
|Use Auth0 instead of the IdP to do Single Sign-on (SSO). **Legacy tenants only.**||If enabled, Auth0 will handle SSO instead of Salesforce.|
Configure integration with Salesforce
To configure the integration with Salesforce, follow the instructions listed in the Tutorial view (which will appear when you save the initial configuration settings).
Choose the connections to use with your SSO integration. Users in enabled connections will be allowed to log in to Salesforce. By default, all configured connections are enabled.
Select the Connections view.
Toggle the sliders next to connection names to enable or disable them.
