Single Sign-On

CoSchedule offers Single Sign-On for authentication to Marketing Suite customers via a self-serve configuration area within the application.

SSO is offered via Service Provider Initiated SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language). OIDC (OpenID Connect) is not supported at this time.

Configuring your CoSchedule company to use SSO

1. Begin by creating a new service in your identity provider using the details below.

ACS URL: https://login.coschedule.com/saml2/idpresponse

Entity ID: urn:amazon:cognito:sp:us-east-1_ekrdmah0C

Attribute Mappings:

Field Name     SAML Attribute

First name       http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/05/identity/claims/givenname

Last name       http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/05/identity/claims/surname

Email                http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2005/05/identity/claims/emailaddress

2. Next, log in to CoSchedule as a company admin and navigate to the settings area, then click the Security tab.

3. Using the same service you created in step 1, input the SAML metadata URL provided by your identity provider. (If your identity provider does not provide a public URL, you may instead paste the SAML XML metadata, however, using a URL is recommended.)

4. After inputting your SAML metadata URL or file, click Save.

5. After we validate your metadata, the SSO User Management area will appear. This area allows you to enable or disable SSO for each user in your Company.

  • If you are opting a user into SSO, they will no longer be able to login with a password and will instead authenticate via your SSO service only.
  • If you are opting a user out of SSO, they will receive an email asking them to set a new password and will no longer be able to authenticate via your SSO service.
Note: Changing the “SSO Enabled” option for a user will require them to log in again using whichever authentication method you toggled them to.

6. Once you configure SSO for your Company, all new team members invited to your company will default to authenticating via your SSO service. Any existing users in your company at the time of enabling SSO will remain unchanged but may be opted into SSO using the toggle described in the previous step.

Disabling SSO for your company

1. Log in to CoSchedule as a company admin and navigate to the settings area, then click the Security tab.

2. In the SSO User Management section, toggle off SSO for all users in your company. All users will then log in with a username and password.

3. Click the ‘Disable SSO’ button. This will remove the SSO configuration from your company.
