Salsify cloud application

You must be signed in as a super administrator for this task.

Using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), your users can use their Google Cloud credentials to sign in to enterprise-cloud applications.

Set up SSO via SAML for Salsify

Here's how to set up single sign-on (SSO) via SAML for the Salsify® application.

Step 1: Get Google identity provider (IdP) information
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Security and then Set up single sign-on (SSO).

    To see Security, you might have to click More controls at the bottom. 

  3. In the Set up single sign-on (SSO) section:
    • Copy and save the SSO URL.
    • Copy and save the Entity ID.
    • Download the Certificate.

In the next step, you send this information to Salsify via email. After they respond, you return to the Admin console in Step 3 below to finish SSO configuration.

Step 2: Send IdP information to Salsify

Send an email to Salsify Support requesting that SSO be enabled for your account. Include the following identity provider (IdP) information copied in Step 1:

  • SSO URL 
  • Entity ID 
  • Attach the certificate you downloaded in Step 1 as a text file attachment to the email.

Salsify will process your request and provide you with a Callback URL. Use this value to finish configuring SSO in the Admin console in Step 3 below.

Step 3: Set up Google as a SAML identity provider (IdP)
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Apps and then SAML Apps.

    To see Apps on the Home page, you might have to click More controls at the bottom. 

  3. Click the plus (+) icon at bottom right.
  4. Locate and click Salsify in the application list.
  5. Click Next.

    The Basic information window shows the Application name and Description seen by users.

  6. Click Next.
  7. On the Service Provider Details page, replace the ACS URL with the Callback URL you got from Salsify.
  8. Click Finish.
Step 4: Enable the Salsify app
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Apps and then SAML Apps.

    To see Apps on the Home page, you might have to click More controls at the bottom. 

  3. Select Salsify.
  4. At the top right of the gray box, click Edit Service Compose.

  5. To turn on or off a service for everyone in your organization, click On for everyone or Off for everyone, and then click Save.

  6. To turn on or off a service only for users in an organizational unit:

    1. At the left, select the organizational unit.
    2. Select On or Off.
    3. To keep the service turned on or off even when the service is turned on or off for the parent organizational unit, click Override.
    4. If the organization's status is already Overridden, choose an option:
      • Inherit—Reverts to the same setting as its parent.
      • Save—Saves your new setting (even if the parent setting changes).

  7. Ensure that your Salsify user account email IDs match those in your Google domain.
Step 5: Verify that the SSO is working

  3. Enter your sign in credentials.
  4. After your sign in credentials are authenticated, you are automatically redirected back to Salsify.
