Here is a list of the frequently asked question regarding our SSO integration:



My organization uses an identity service provider (IdP) that's not in the list above. Will it be supported?

If your IDP provides a SAML metadata URL for dynamic configuration, you can follow the same setup steps as above. Please contact support for SAML configuration assistance for other IDPs.

Does Lang support IdP-initiatied flows?

IdP-initiated flows carry a security risk and are therefore are disabled by default. This may be enabled upon request. Make sure you understand the risks before enabling IdP-initiated SSO.

How does Lang SAML SSO handle user provisioning?

Lang supports Just-in-Time (JIT) provisioning β€” the user is created the first time it completes the first login into Lang. The default role for these users is the "member" role. We don't currently support user provisioning with SCIM.

Does Lang SAML SSO support Single Logout?

Not at this time. If Single Logout is important to you, please contact our support team to let us know. Take into account that users are logged out after 30 minutes of inactivity. We also have an absolute logout for users every 12 hours.

What version of SAML does Lang support?

We currently support SAML v2.0.
