SSO Portal configuration

Use the SSO Portal (formerly Secure Portal) to provide a main page for end user single sign-on (SSO) access to applications.

You can add many applications to the SSO Portal and give end users easy access to applications in your organization, using SSO.

With SecureAuth® Identity Platform release 24.04 or later, you can customize the look and feel of the SSO Portal by creating and applying portal themes. For more information, see SSO Portal themes.



Add and configure SSO Portal internal application

Use the Internal Application Manager to add and configure the Secure Portal page.


These instructions apply to configuring an SSO Portal with a custom portal theme. To set up the older version of the SSO Portal without a custom theme, see Secure Portal single sign-on configuration.
