SSO OneLogin Setup

The following instructions set up an identity provider in OneLogin.


OneLogin is a Single Sign-On (SSO) Provider and application portal that supports SAML 2.0, OpenID Connect, and form-based authentication. Tehama can be integrated with OneLogin through SAML 2.0 and presented as a managed application alongside other OneLogin integrated applications.

Once enabled, authentication to Tehama must be made through OneLogin - local authentication through is no longer possible except by using the Tehama Org Admin account. OneLogin/Tehama Integration is limited to authentication only.

User accounts are required for both OneLogin and Tehama. Both accounts must be configured with the same email address for SSO to work, and the user must accept the Tehama Welcome email before they will be able to launch a connection via OneLogin SSO.

Integration Summary

Integration with OneLogin SSO is a four-step process as follows.

  1. Obtain initial configuration settings from Tehama
  2. Create an application in OneLogin
  3. Obtain the required Federation Metadata XML from OneLogin
  4. Enter it back into Tehama
