  18. For the User creation on Sign in radio buttons, choose the option you prefer. If you choose the radio button to create new users, JIT provisioning will be enabled. By assigning the user the app in Bitium, they will be able to login, and a user account in Igloo will be created for them if one didn’t already exist.

  19. For the Sign in Settings, choose which option you would prefer.

    • By choosing Redirect all users to IdP, clicking on the app in Bitium will take you straight into Igloo, without hitting the login page at all. We recommend this as a smoother user experience when using Bitium. You will remain logged into Igloo as long as you’re logged into Bitium.
    • By choosing Use SAML button on “Sign in” screen, clicking on the app in Bitium will take you to the login page, upon which there will be a SAML button. Clicking this button will log you in. However, when logged into Igloo, you can logout at any time, which will return you to the login screen.

In Bitium:

Go back to the Single Sign-On tab for Igloo and click the “Save Changes” button.

Bitium does not support full IdP Logout at this time. If you would like to request this feature, please contact
SAML Enabled will be illuminated in green once completed.
