Single Sign On

Specific Role Required to Configure SSO

To configure SSO for your program, you must be an Organization Owner.
Organization Owners can log in using Username and Password.

Bugcrowd offers a Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) based Single Sign-On (SSO) integration with OneLogin to help you create an easy and centralized way to log in to Crowdcontrol. SAML is an XML-based standard for SSO authentication that creates a simplified way to access the applications that you can use. If you do not have OneLogin set up, see getting started guide.

The steps to configure OneLogin for SSO are:

  1. Adding Bugcrowd to your OneLogin Apps Portal
  2. Adding Your Identity Provider's SSO Settings to Crowdcontrol
  3. Verifying domain
  4. Logging in to SSO

Adding Bugcrowd to Your OneLogin Apps Portal

  1. Log in to your OneLogin account.
  2. Select Apps > Add Apps.
  1. Search for Bugcrowd.

  1. Modify any of the configuration settings that control how the Bugcrowd app appears in your portal and the connector version you want to use. Select SAML 2.0 as your connector.
