SSO is an authentication service that allows a user to use just one set of login credentials to access multiple applications without the need to login again every time a new application is opened.
💡SSO, Single-Sign-On or Custom domain is used to identify the users of different organizations so that they can sign in using the same username and password that they use in everyday work. In other words, these users don't need separate username and password for Showell.
Setting up SSO requires sufficient IT skills, therefor we only recommend to set this up if your company has dedicated IT personnel.
