Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an XML-based open standard data format for exchanging authentication and authorization data between parties, in particular, between an identity provider and a service provider. Installing this app in your BambooHR account will enable you to configure Single Sign-On between your identity provider and BambooHR (as the service provider) using SAML 2.0.
By installing this app in your BambooHR account you are enabling BambooHR as a Service Provider for SAML, web-based single sign-on (SSO). After installing, you’ll be able to save the SAML Endpoint URL and SAML Certificate information given to you by your SAML Identity Provider (OneLogin, Okta, etc). Upon successful configuration you’ll enjoy seamless, web-based single sign-on into BambooHR from your single sign-on portal or company intranet.
