About Single Sign-On

Apptimized Single Sign-On (SSO) is an authentication technology that enables an Apptimized user to secure log in with single credentials to any of Apptimized solutions or services he has a subscription. 

Before starting the Apptimized SSO application, it is recommended to check the list of prerequisites and firewall rules. 

The Apptimized SSO application is available under the https://auth.apptimized.com/

The following scheme shows a user login experience (both for the existing and new Apptimized user):

No need to reconfigure accounts for the existing Apptimized users. Therefore, existing credentials will continue to work.

In the case a password is not consistent with the organization's security policy settings or is expired, a password update is required.

When a user is logged into the Apptimized SSO application, organization settings can be performed in the Organization Management application.
