What is Single Sign-On (SSO)?

Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication method that allows users to sign in to Glean using their institutional credentials. In turn, this helps colleges and universities to easily and securely offer Glean at scale.

How does SSO work in Glean?

SSO is a new feature that we are making available to a select number of eligible customers.

Unlike most of our releases, SSO is not available automatically - instead, there are a few steps we need to take to get your institution up and running with Glean. These are outlined below.

Once set up, students and admins alike will be able to sign in to Glean and Glean Admin using their institutional credentials. 

As early adopters of our SSO offering, please be aware that we may encounter a few unknowns during the implementation process which we will work through.
