There are three different ways users of Exivity can be authenticated. The default method is local authentication which uses local users managed through Exivity (either via the GUI or API). More options are available by navigating to Settings > System > Single Sign-On:
Users logging in with local authentication use a combination of username and password.
Users logging in with our SAML SSO integration use an external SAML Identity Provider (IdP) to authenticate users. User attributes, usergroup and account access can be provisioned with user properties from the SAML SSO response.
Users logging in with our LDAP SSO integration use an external LDAP server to authenticate users with a combination of username and password. User attributes and usergroup can be provisioned with user properties from the SAML SSO response.
