If you’re reading this article, chances are you know the benefits of using an Identify provider that will manage your information and verify your users’ identity ; allowing them to log into related softwares solely using their e-mail address.

In short

To simplify it, once you have shared your email address and launched the SSO process, Upflow will knock at your IP’s door. The latter will make sure you are who you say you are and confirm it to Upflow who will let you in!

How to enable it?

First things first, you will need to introduce Upflow to your Identity Provider, by creating a new app in it. This grants Upflow (the new app) the right to read information associated to the credentials your users submit.

Input the following redirect address to your IdP [<https://auth.upflow.io/__/auth/handler>].


💡 If in doubt, reach out at [email protected] - we will provide more detailed documentation, depending on your ID provider.


Once it is done, open secrets.upflow.io, and add the following information into the Editor field

  1. Parameters of the newly registered app, pulled from your IP: client_id, client_secret, issuer.

  2. Email domain name of your users (what comes after the “@” in their address, like “upflow.io”).

Click on Send to encrypt the content you have just filled in ; and share it with your interlocutor who will pass it on to our Engineers. They will decrypt it before adding the information to your account.

And..voilà !
