Preparing to enforce SAML single sign-on in your organization

Before you enforce SAML single sign-on in your organization, you should verify your organization's membership and configure the connection settings to your identity provider.

SAML single sign-on is available with GitHub Enterprise Cloud. For more information, see "GitHub's products."

When you enforce SAML SSO, all members of the organization must authenticate through your IdP to access the organization's resources. Before enforcing SAML SSO in your organization, you should review organization membership, enable SAML SSO, and review organization members' SAML access. For more information, see the following.

TaskMore information
Add or remove members from your organization
Connect your IdP to your organization by enabling SAML SSO
Ensure that your organization members have signed in and linked their accounts with the IdP

After you finish these tasks, you can enforce SAML SSO for your organization. For more information, see "Enforcing SAML single sign-on for your organization."

Note: Outside collaborators aren't required to authenticate with an IdP to access the resources in an organization with SAML SSO. For more information on outside collaborators, see "Permission levels for an organization."
