Adobe Sign cloud application

You must be signed in as a super administrator for this task.

With Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), your users can sign in to enterprise cloud applications with their Google Cloud credentials.

Set up SSO via SAML for Adobe Sign

Before you begin, log in to your Adobe Sign® account and submit a support request to enable your organization’s domain in Adobe Sign. In the support request form, let them know that you would like to enable SAML via Google. Wait for Adobe Sign to notify you that the domain has been enabled before proceeding.

Step 1: Set up Google as a SAML identity provider (IdP)
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Apps and then SAML Apps.

    To see Apps on the Home page, you might have to click More controls at the bottom. 

  3. Click Add Add at the bottom right.
  4. Locate and click Adobe Sign in the application list.
  5. On the Google IDP Information page:
    1. Copy and save the SSO URL and the Entity ID.
    2. Download the Certificate.
  6. Click Next.

    The Basic information window shows the Application name and Description seen by users.

  7. Click Next.
  8. On the Service Provider Details page, edit the ACS URL, replacing {your-subdomain} with your Adobe Sign subdomain.
  9. On the Attribute Mapping page, set Select category and Select user field values as follows for the listed attributes:
    Application attribute Select category Select user field
    emailAddress Basic Information Primary Email
  10. Click Finish.
Step 2: Set up Adobe Sign as a SAML 2.0 service provider (SP)
  1. Open a new incognito browser window and sign in to Adobe Sign as an administrator.
  2. Go to Account and then Account Settings and then SAML Settings
    ​​In Adobe Sign, you have 2 ways to configure SAML for your users: 
    • ​​​SAML Allowed: Users may authenticate through Google without a password, or directly to Adobe Sign with their credentials.​
    • SAML Mandatory (Recommended): Users may access Adobe Sign through Google. This is the most secure method.
  3. Select a SAML mode that best meets your needs.
  4. (Optional) Select the User Creation option.
  5. Populate the following fields with the information you obtained from Google in step 1:
    • IdP Certificate: Use the Certificate you downloaded.
    • IdP Entity ID: Use the Entity ID you copied.
    • IdP Login URL: Use the SSO URL you copied.
  1. ​Click Save Changes.
Step 3: Enable the Adobe Sign app
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Apps and then SAML Apps.

    To see Apps on the Home page, you might have to click More controls at the bottom. 

  3. Select Adobe Sign.
  4. At the top right of the gray box, click Edit Service Compose.

  5. To turn on or off a service for everyone in your organization, click On for everyone or Off for everyone, and then click Save.

  6. To turn on or off a service only for users in an organizational unit:

    1. At the left, select the organizational unit.
    2. Select On or Off.
    3. To keep the service turned on or off even when the service is turned on or off for the parent organizational unit, click Override.
    4. If the organization's status is already Overridden, choose an option:
      • Inherit—Reverts to the same setting as its parent.
      • Save—Saves your new setting (even if the parent setting changes).

    Learn more about organizational structure.

  7. Ensure that your Adobe Sign user account email IDs match those in your Google domain.
Step 4: Verify that SSO is working
  1. Open https://{your-subdomain}.adobesign.com/public/samllogin. 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 Adobe Sign.
