Step 4: Verify that the SSO is working

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

  2. Open https://{yourdomain}.bime.io.
  3. Enter your username and password and click SAML login.

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