Step 4: Verify that the SSO is working

Mingle supports both Identity Provider (IdP) initiated and Service Provider (SP) initiated SSO. Follow these steps to verify SSO in either mode:

IdP-initiated

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using an account with super administrator privileges (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Appsand thenWeb and mobile apps.
  3. Select Mingle.
  4. At the top left, click Test SAML login

    Mingle should open in a separate tab. If it doesn’t, use the information in the resulting SAML error messages to update your IdP and SP settings as needed, then retest SAML login.

SP-initiated

  1. Close all browser windows.
  2. Open https://your-subdomain.mingle.thoughtworks.com and attempt to sign in. You should be redirected to the Google sign in page.
  3. Enter your username and password.

After your credentials are authenticated, you are redirected back to Mingle.

If the user account authenticated by Google IdP does not already exist in Mingle, a new user account is automatically provisioned by Mingle for the signed-in user.
