VersionOne cloud application

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

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

Set up SSO via SAML for VersionOne

Here's how to set up Single Sign-On (SSO) via SAML for the VersionOne application.

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

    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 thenSAML apps.
  3. Click Add at the bottom right.
  4. Locate and click VersionOne in the application list.
  5. On the Google IDP Information page, download the IDP metadata.
  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 Start URL, replacing {your‑hostname} with your VersionOne subdomain.
  9. Click Next.
  10. On the Attribute Mapping page, set the Select category and Select user field values as follows for the listed attributes:
     
    Application attribute Select category Select user field
    username Basic Information Primary Email
    email Basic Information Primary Email
  11. Click Finish.
Step 2: Set up VersionOne as a SAML 2.0 service provider (SP)

Send an email to VersionOne support requesting that SSO be enabled for your account, attaching the IDP metadata file you downloaded in Step 1. VersionOne will contact you when they've enabled SSO for your account.

Step 3: Enable the VersionOne 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 Appsand thenSAML apps.
  3. Select VersionOne.
  4. Click User access.
  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. (Optional) Turn on the service for a group of users.
    Use access groups to turn on a service for specific users within or across your organizational units. Learn more

  8. Ensure that your VersionOne user account email IDs match those in your Google domain.
Step 4: Verify that the SSO is working

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

IdP-initiated

  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 Appsand thenSAML apps.
  3. Select VersionOne.
  4. At the top left, click Test SAML login

    VersionOne 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. Navigate to https://www13.v1host.com/{your-hostname}/default.aspx. You should be automatically redirected to the Google sign-in page.
  2. Enter your sign in credentials.

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