Identity Provider Integration for Enhanced Mobile App Security

Updated in March- 2024 | Subscribe to watch greytHR how-to video

An Identity Provider acts as a trusted third-party system that verifies the user's identity. IdP also provides the necessary information to other systems. This helps users to access those systems without providing their login credentials again. 

Integrating mobile apps with the Identity Provider (IdP) improves employees’ data security. IdP allows you to sign in securely to your account through a third-party URL. 

The Advanced Options page helps you to configure the IdP feature. To configure the IdP feature, click the Settings icon > System Settings > Miscellaneous > Advanced Options.

To configure the feature, perform the following steps:

  1. Enable the Saml option.

  2. Configure the URL of the third-party system.

⚠️ We recommend you to contact the greytHR support team before making any changes in settings.

  1. On the Advanced Options page, in the Search box, search for Saml. The table appears.

  3. Click Save to enable the selected option.
