Step 2: Activate Way We Do Setup

4. Enter a Single sign-on name - This name will appear on the sign-on page once the function is enabled to inform users of the single sign-on option. (e.g. Google Apps Sign-On, Acme Co. Single Sign-On, Company Login)

5. Enter the Identity ID - This was provided in the screen that appeared on step 5 above.

6. Enter the SAML SSO URL - This was provided in the screen that appeared on step 5 above.

7. Upload your certificate by clicking the Select button next to Certificate - The information passed between the Identity Provider and Way We Do needs to be encrypted, so a certificate is used.

8. Optional Settings -

  • Enable Passwords - This option disables the regular password function for Way We Do so that users must use single sign-on
  • Enable Auto-provisioning - When this is enabled, the email address used to sign-on will be automatically compared to the list of users in Way We Do. If the email address does not match a current user in Way We Do, it will create the option to automatically add a new user account for the person signing in. This is ideal for large organizations since they can simply tell users to log in and it will automatically add them as users in Way We Do.
    • NOTE: Users added through single sign-on are added as general users and are not assigned a role in the system. A role can be manually added, and the user can be changed to an Editor or Admin within Way We Do.
