SSO based direct link for specific dashboards/charts

We want to have direct SSO based link not only for the home page but also for the other dashboards/charts within SmartBear AlertSite. 


  • Hey dear, Implementing Single Sign-On (SSO) for SmartBear AlertSite is a great way to streamline access to the platform and enhance security. To set up direct SSO-based links not only for the homepage but also for other dashboards or charts within AlertSite, you'll typically follow these steps:

    1. Configure SSO Provider: Set up and configure your chosen SSO provider (e.g., Okta, Azure Active Directory, OneLogin) to authenticate users and generate access tokens.
    2. Integrate SSO with AlertSite: Configure AlertSite to integrate with your SSO provider. This typically involves configuring SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) settings in AlertSite and exchanging metadata with your SSO provider.
    3. Generate Deep Links: Once SSO integration is set up, you can generate deep links to specific dashboards or charts within AlertSite. These links will include authentication tokens or parameters that allow users to access the desired resources directly after authentication.
    4. Share Deep Links: Distribute the generated deep links to users who need access to the specific dashboards or charts. This could be done through email, documentation, or within your organization's portal or dashboard.
    5. Test Access: Before rolling out the deep links to all users, thoroughly test them to ensure that they authenticate users correctly and grant access to the intended resources.
    6. Monitor and Maintain: Regularly monitor SSO authentication and access to ensure that everything is functioning as expected. Update SSO configurations or deep links as needed, especially if there are changes to user roles, permissions, or the AlertSite environment.
