Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is a security standard for logging into applications. SAML-based single sign-on (SSO) gives users access to Waitwhile through an identity provider (IDP) of your choice.
Currently, only service-provider initiated SAML 2.0 flows are supported.
Steps for enabling SSO/SAML on your Waitwhile account**
NOTE: SSO/SAML are only available for customers on the Enterprise Plan.
1. Configure your Identity Provider
As a first step, you’ll need to add Waitwhile app to your identity provider.
Use the following information to complete the configuration process with your IdP:
SP Entity ID
SP Assertion Consumer Service URL (ACS URL)
SP Start URL (optional)
2. Setup SAML/SSO for Waitwhile
Once you’ve configured your identity provider (IdP), complete the Waitwhile SAML/SSO Setup Form by providing the following information:
IdP Entity ID
This is the identifier for the Identity Provider you are using
IdP SSO URL
This is the URL used to start the login process
This allows to validate SAML requests from your identity provider. It must be an X.509 certificate in the base64 format.
This value begins with '-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----'.
List of Allowed Domains (ie. @yourbusiness.com) which will be used to verify if users logging into your account have the appropriate email domains.
With SAML/SSO enabled you will only be able to invite users using email addresses that match your allowed domain(s).
Typically 2-3 business days after submitting the SAML/SSO setup form you should receive an email from a member of the Waitwhile team letting you know that SAML/SSO has successfully been enabled for your account and added users (with allowed email domains) can begin using https://www.waitwhile.com/login/sso to login using SSO/SAML.
**SSO/SAML setup is only available for Enterprise level subscription plans.
