Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication process that lets users access their Sketch Account through an identity provider (IdP) — like Google, OneLogin, Okta, Azure and others — instead of setting up separate login details.
There are two key benefits to SSO. First, it’s a very secure authentication method that gives you full control over who can access your company’s Sketch Account — your Head of Security will love it! Second, it makes logging into Sketch faster and easier for your team, because they won’t need to create (and remember!) new login credentials.
From a technical perspective, our current SSO implementation is compliant with SAML 2.0, including JIT provisioning. It’s also compatible with almost every identity provider that uses the SAML 2.0 basis.
Note: Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an XML-based protocol that uses security tokens to pass information between a SAML authority (i.e., an Identity Provider or IdP) and a SAML consumer (i.e., a Service Provider — in this case, us) about a principal (usually an end user).
