Hello Orangescrummers,

Here’s a good news for all of you. Now Orangescrum has released the “Single Sign-On (SSO)” add-on for Open Source Enterprise users.

Thanks to technology, even the smallest businesses deal with dozens of applications that require their own login credentials. It’s obvious that logging in and out of apps all the time is frustrating. Single sign-on technology simplifies all the chaos.

Single sign-on is a user authentication service that permits a user to use one set of login credentials to access multiple apps. That means there would be a common login credential of the Single sign-on provider which would be used to login to different applications, resulting in one global user database for the entire company.

Don’t let your external users or internal employees go through the hassle of remembering a dozen credentials.


How Does it Work?

Single sign-on holds on to a central server.

When a user logs in to the application for the first time, the page is redirected to the single sign-on provider application. After a successful login, the user is automatically redirected to the respective application.

Let’s take an example-

Google uses Single Sign-on in its services. Its central server is

Once you are logged in the central server, you can access Gmail, Google Docs, and YouTube without entering the credentials separately.

Benefits of using Single Sign-on:

The biggest benefit of using this user authentication service is that the user only needs one set of credentials. Here, I’ve shortlisted some other benefits:

  • Saves time as users don’t need to re-enter credentials every time
  • Saves IT cost (Fewer instances of forgotten passwords & recoveries)
  • Reduces credential sprawl

Keeping all these things in mind and seeing the popularity of SSO, Orangescrum has updated itself with the latest add-on.

What are the Platforms Where You Can use this Add-on?

  • Windows
  • Mac OS
  • Ubuntu
  • Cent OS

Now the next thing that comes into consideration is, implementation! It’s easy to implement SSO in your enterprise.
