Single Sign-On Integration
Bright Pattern integrates with Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 identity providers, allowing you to configure single sign-on (SSO) functionality for the Agent Desktop application or the Contact Center Administrator (Admin) application.
Note that only one instance can be created per contact center.
Note that SSO bypass is allowed by privilege. For more information, see section Privileges.
For specific instructions on configuring SSO with specific providers see Administration Tutorials, section Integrations.
There are two types of properties for Single Sign-On integration accounts: Agent Desktop SSO and Admin SSO. You can enable just Agent Desktop SSO functionality and keep Admin login credentials local or you can enable both Agent Desktop and Admin SSO functionality.
The name of the integration account (any name).
Enable Single Sign-On
Select the checkbox to enable single sign-on functionality for the Agent Desktop application.
Use SSO for administrator portal login
Select the checkbox in order to enable SSO for users of the Contact Center Administrator application (i.e., the "administrator portal") who have the admin role.
Identity Provider Single Sign-On URL
The login URL of your identity provider.
Identity Provider Issuer
The unique identifier of your identity provider.
Identity Provider Certificate
The contents of the SAML certificate that the identity provider uses to sign the SAML tokens that it sends to the application.
Enable Just-in-time user provisioning
Select this checkbox to enable Just-in-time user provisioning (JIT). JIT user provisioning automatically creates call center users on the first SSO login attempt authorized by the identity provider.
Note that JIT is disabled if SSO is not enabled.
You should enable JIT user provisioning if:
- JIT user provisioning is enabled for the application
- The tenant URL is known (extracted from the domain name, tenantUrl parameter, or SAML additional parameter)
- The user with login Id does not exist in that tenant
- SAML assertion is signed and valid
When creating a new user using JIT user provisioning:
- The newly created user should copy assignments (e.g., roles, teams, skills, etc.) from the selected user template
- User contact information should be copied from SAML assertion. As a minimum, this contact information should include first name, last name, login ID, and email address (others are optional)
- Once the user is created, that user should be logged in immediately
Select this checkbox to copy assignments (e.g., roles, teams, skills, etc.) from a specific user, and apply them to new call center users created by JIT user provisioning.
Note that SSO templates are required if JIT user provisioning enabled. SSO templates are disabled if JIT user provisioning is disabled.
Strip domain suffix from login names
When this checkbox is selected, this option removes the domain suffix from user logins. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org would be converted to simply jane.doe. If the box is unchecked, the full login name will be used. This box is unchecked by default.
