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.
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:
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
Public Certificate: 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): 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).
3. We will review and configure SAML/SSO for you
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 app.waitwhile.com/login/sso to login using SSO/SAML.
