Connecting your identity provider to your organization

To use SAML single sign-on and SCIM, you must connect your identity provider (IdP) to your organization on GitHub Enterprise Cloud.

About connection of your IdP to your organization

When you enable SAML SSO for your GitHub Enterprise Cloud organization, you connect your identity provider (IdP) to your organization. For more information, see "Enabling and testing SAML single sign-on for your organization."

Note: To use SAML single sign-on, your organization must use GitHub Enterprise Cloud. For more information about how you can try GitHub Enterprise Cloud for free, see "Setting up a trial of GitHub Enterprise Cloud."

You can find the SAML and SCIM implementation details for your IdP in the IdP's documentation.

  • Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) SAML
  • Microsoft Entra ID (previously known as Azure AD) SAML and SCIM
  • Okta SAML and SCIM
  • OneLogin SAML and SCIM
  • PingOne SAML
  • Shibboleth SAML

Note: GitHub Enterprise Cloud supported identity providers for SCIM are Entra ID, Okta, and OneLogin. For more information about SCIM, see "About SCIM for organizations."

You cannot use this implementation of SCIM with an enterprise account or with an organization with managed users. If your enterprise is enabled for Enterprise Managed Users, you must use a different implementation of SCIM. Otherwise, SCIM is not available at the enterprise level. For more information, see "Configuring SCIM provisioning for Enterprise Managed Users."
