SAML Authentication


Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an open standard that allows identity providers (IdP) to pass authorization credentials to Jiffy Service Provider (SP).
Tenants configured with SAML Authentication can be used to enable web browser single sign-on (SSO).
This allows you to:

  • Authenticate only once and gain access to separately secured systems without resubmitting credentials.
  • Both JIFFY and SAML logins for the same tenant.

Ensure that IDP Metadata File is generated before proceeding.
