Step 5: Verify that the SSO is working

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

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Appsand thenWeb and mobile apps.

  4. At the top left, click Test SAML login

    Hive 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. Open https://app.hive.com.
  2. Enter your email address and click Sign in with SSO. 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 Hive.
