Step 4: Verify that the SSO is working

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

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

    Chartio 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://chartio.com/<org-id> where <org-id> is your organization’s unique Chartio ID.
  3. Click Log in with SAML. You should be redirected to the Google sign-in page.
  4. Enter your username and password.
  5. After your credentials are authenticated, you are redirected back to Chartio.

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