Disabling SAML single sign-on for your organization

You can disable SAML single sign-on (SSO) for your organization.

Who can use this feature?

Organization owners can disable SAML SSO for an organization.

After you disable SAML SSO for your organization, all external identities for your organization will be removed. For more information, see "Viewing and managing a member's SAML access to your organization."

  1. In the upper-right corner of GitHub, select your profile photo, then click Your organizations.

  2. Next to the organization, click Settings.

    Note: If you're unable to access the organization because your identity provider (IdP) is unavailable, you can use a recovery code to bypass SSO. For more information, see "Accessing your organization if your identity provider is unavailable."

  3. In the "Security" section of the sidebar, click Authentication security.

  4. Under "SAML single sign-on", deselect Enable SAML authentication.

  5. Click Save.
