Single Sign On

Smartsheet Single Sign-On (SSO) increases data security and helps enforce your security policies by requiring users on your plan to use stronger passwords and a single set of credentials.

Single Sign-On is a user authentication method allowing a single set of credentials through an Identity Provider (IdP) to access multiple services (including Smartsheet). It has many uses for companies that want to increase security and control over user authentication. For example, within your IdP you can set specific requirements like password length or type, manage access to specific services, and more.

Available Single Sign-On Options 

Smartsheet Enterprise and Premier plans include three Single Sign On solutions that you can enable:

  • Google Integration - for those who have Google account credentials
  • Microsoft Azure Active Directory - for users who have Office 365 work accounts 
  • SAML 2.0 compatible identity providers like Okta or ADFS

Smartsheet Enterprise and Premier plans also allow you to disable other login capabilities, giving you even more control over your organization’s access to your data.

SAML and SSO for Smartsheet - Overview (Enterprise Only)

With Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) and Single Sign-On (SSO), you can extend your organization’s security preferences to an Enterprise-level Smartsheet account, allowing employees to sign in to Smartsheet with their corporate credentials. When SAML is configured, employees on the company network can use the Your Company Account button on the login page and authenticate with their company provided SSO credentials. 

Setting up SAML-based SSO with Smartsheet requires setting up your organization’s Identity Provider (IdP) to communicate with Smartsheet and adding a record to your organization’s Domain Name System (DNS). You may need to loop in an internal technical resource for assistance with setup and maintenance of this feature. 

Smartsheet supports SAML 2 for SSO, and the following SAML 2 compliant identity providers: 

    •    OneLogin

    •    ADFS

    •    Shibboleth

    •    PingIdentity

    •    Okta
