Step 4: Verify that the SSO is working

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

IdP-initiated

    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.

    Carbonite 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-domain}.mysecuredatavault.com and attempt to sign in. You should be automatically redirected to the Google sign-in page.
  3. Enter your username and password.

After your sign-in credentials are authenticated, you're automatically redirected back to Carbonite.
