Visual UGC Docs

Single Sign On


Visual UGC supports Secure Assertion Markup Language (SAML), which allows you to provide single sign-on (SSO) for your Visual UGC account using enterprise identity providers such as Active Directory and LDAP.
By using SAML, a user is automatically verified with the identity provider when they sign in. The user can then access the Visual UGC Platform without being prompted to enter separate login credentials.
Key benefits of Visual UGC's SSO offering include:
  • Clients are able to enforce their respective password standards
  • Access to Visual UGC is routed through the client's Identity Provider (IdP)
  • Clients are able to revoke access to any system, including Visual UGC, by locking the account and/or changing the password
  • Clients can implement their own Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) or Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) standards
  • End Users are able to leverage the same credentials they use for other systems
  • Clients are able to implement their own polices around Password resets
  • Staff are discouraged from sharing their accounts
