SSO Setup & Troubleshooting


  • Single-Sign-On (SSO) is a service which allows systems and applications to authenticate users with CSUMB's enterprise Identity Management System.  

Features and Benefits: 

  • SSO allows applications to use the same username and password as most of CSUMB's enterprise services, such as our website, G-Suite for Education and CMS.

Who can request a new SSO configuration: 

  • Staff
  • Faculty

How do I get it: 

  • If you are implementing a new application, or want to convert an application to use Single-Sign-On, please submit an IT Service Request.

Supported SSO implementations:

  • SAML authentication is the preferred method of SSO implementation
  • The campus utilizes Okta as our SSO product, the vendor needs to be compatible with Okta SSO to be supported by the campus.

Required for new SSO connections:

  • A service summary is required to set up a new SSO connection.  This summary should include at minimum: a description of the service, who has access to the service, and who to contact for service support.  A new SSO connection cannot be activated until a link to one of the following is provided in the SSO ticket.

    • If the new service is an IT supported application, ensure there is a TeamDynamix Knowledge Base article or service page. 

    • If this is an application supported by a group outside of IT, you can submit a TeamDynamix Change ticket to have a support page created, or provide a link to your existing support documentation.

How much does it cost: 

  • There is typically no cost for IT@CSUMB to setup SSO, however, some vendors may charge a fee for setup of the application.
