Single Sign-On (SSO) Setup Instructions

How do I set up SSO for my domain?

  1. Send your request to Support via this form with the subject "SSO Request." In the body of the message, please include your SAML metadata:
    1. The email domain (s) for which you want SSO enabled
    2. Identity provider Entity Id
    3. Identity provider SSO URL
    4. Identity provider certificate (preferably in .cer or .pem format)

  2. Please configure the following settings in your Identity provider (IDP):
    1. Set Name ID format to EmailAddress
    2. Add firstName, lastName, and email as separate attributes sent in SAML assertions
    3. Set the relay state to

Our Support team will work with you to set up the SSO connection manually, and then test logging in.

Once SSO is enabled, everyone using UserTesting with your email domain will need to log in using SSO. In other words, if the domain is "," everyone with an address will be required to use SSO.
