You use single sign-on (SSO) to control multiple independent software solutions with a single ID. You log in only once, and then you will automatically be able to work with all connected applications, no matter which platform, technology, or domain they use. To work with this technology, you usually need to connect your application to the identity management service. There is a multitude of such services; each of them provides various ways to work with a single identity in various applications.
Starting from version 11.2, QAComplete uses the SAML 2.0 technology standard to work with single sign-on services. It allows the identity provider to create user-specific assertions, which identify a user and allow them to log in to various applications without extra authorization.
For now, QAComplete works with the following single sign-on providers:
To start using single sign-on, you need to prepare the identity management service and configure QAComplete.
For SaaS users: Before you begin setting up single sign-on, find out your domain name:

You will need your domain name when configuring single sign-on, so we recommend that you copy your domain name or write it down.
