How To Configure SSO in Threat Stack

Enabling Single Sign-On in Threat Stack

This process walks you through configuring, verifying, and enabling SSO for Threat Stack using SAML 2.0 Authentication.

IMPORTANT: If you use a personal email account, that is not recognized by your company, you will lose access and no longer be able to login to Threat Stack after enabling SSO.

Configuring your Identity Provider

A part of enabling SSO in Threat Stack involves configuring the identity provider (IdP) and Threat Stack to connect with each other properly.

REMINDER: You must be your IdP admin to configure your identity provider.

IMPORTANT: If your organization has more than one Threat Stack organization, contact support to enable SSO.

You need to Configure IdP to recognize Threat Stack using the following necessary configuration parameters:

  • SSO Assertion Consumer Service URL (ACS URL):
  • Audience URI (SP Entity ID):
  • ACS (Consumer) URL Validator - OneLogin Specific:^https:\/\/app\.threatstack\.com\/sso\/saml\/callback$
  • Name ID format: Email address
  • Username: Email address
