Step 4: Verify that SSO is working

Digicert 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 Digicert.
  4. At the top left, click Test SAML login

    Digicert 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. Go to your Digicert site and try to log in. 
    You should be redirected to the Google sign-in page.
  2. Enter your username and password.
    After your credentials are authenticated, you are redirected to Digicert.
    When you log in for the first time, you'll be asked to confirm your IDP login. 
  3. Click Yes to complete the process.

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