Hello Readers! Welcome back to another Envisiontel blog post. Today I will be talking about the single sign-on capabilities of LMScheckout, using SAML. I will also be talking about our presence at ATD 2016 this year and what this could mean for you, so please, read on!
Using an application such as LMScheckout often means that you will be jumping from one application to another, which means you will need several usernames and passwords to gain access to them all. Within LMScheckout, a typical workflow could mean starting from a website where a user is authenticated then passed over to LMScheckout to make a purchase and then finally passed on to Totara to participate in a course. Having to remember and re-enter user details as you jump from application to application can be tedious and a waste of time.
This is why Envisiontel has implemented single-sign-on using the popular industry standard SAML, which allows users to have single-sign-on (SSO) capabilities. Customers can configure SAML settings in LMScheckout so that their customers can authenticate in existing online applications and then easily access LMScheckout without having to create new accounts or sign in.
