A post from MAKE Interactive, a Bitrix Gold Partner.
Coordinating Single Sign-On among multiple business software tools is an important feature for users of the Bitrix24 self-hosted version. Even though SSO only saves a small amount of time, it saves time every day for every employee and prevents a great deal of frustration with constant logins and occasional loss of passwords.
Using SAML, a very convenient bridge can be made from Bitrix24 to other tools in your local environment or to any website that supports SAML. Bitrix24 can receive the user's identity from elsewhere, such as an ADFS, or act as an Identity Provider itself.
This is differs from the AD/LDAP integration that is built into Bitrix24 as the source for authentication information can be any software that supports SAML, whether local or in the cloud. But it is similar in that Bitrix24 will find authentication information without bothering the user. The process is performed by an XML exchange between the servers.
If you are interested in this or similar customization in your onsite Bitrix24 installation, please contact MAKE Interactive directly:
