About authentication with SAML single sign-on

You can access 您的企业 by authenticating with SAML single sign-on (SSO) through an identity provider (IdP).

About authentication with SAML SSO

SAML SSO allows an enterprise owner to centrally control and secure access to GitHub AE from a SAML IdP. When you visit 您的企业 in a browser, GitHub AE will redirect you to your IdP to authenticate. After you successfully authenticate with an account on the IdP, the IdP redirects you back to 您的企业. GitHub AE validates the response from your IdP, then grants access.

You must periodically authenticate with your SAML IdP to authenticate and gain access to 您的企业. The duration of this login period is specified by your IdP and is generally 24 hours. This periodic login requirement limits the length of access and requires you to re-identify yourself to continue.

If you can't access GitHub AE, contact your local enterprise owner or administrator for GitHub AE. You may be able to locate contact information for your enterprise by clicking Support at the bottom of any page on GitHub AE. GitHub and GitHub 支持 do not have access to your IdP, and cannot troubleshoot authentication problems.
