Downloading your organization's SAML single sign-on recovery codes

Organization administrators should download their organization's SAML single sign-on recovery codes to ensure that they can access GitHub even if the identity provider for the organization is unavailable.

El inicio de sesión único de SAML se encuentra disponible con GitHub Enterprise Cloud. Para obtener más información, consulta la sección "Productos de GitHub".

Recovery codes should not be shared or distributed. We recommend saving them with a password manager such as LastPass or 1Password.
