Authentication helps your team control who has access to your documentation and how they access it. Keep your data secure with single sign-on and 2-factor authentication! 🔒 

Team authentication settings 

Admins can view their team's current authentication settings by opening the menu in the left-hand corner → Team Settings → Authentication. 

Single-sign on (SSO) providers and settings will appear there.

Single sign-on (SSO) 

Single sign-on allows users to sign into Slab using an account from another app. Slab supports SSO through Google, Okta, OneLogin, Office 365, and Slack. 

Team admins can choose from 3 different enforcement settings — SSO required for all users, SSO required for team members, or SSO optional. 

SSO required for all users

SSO will be required for all users, including guests, when admins choose All users are required to log in using SSO.

All users, including guests, must log in with SSO. New team members and guests must sign up with their team email address.

SSO required for team members 

SSO will be required for all team members when admins choose Admins and regular users are required to log in using SSO

All team members must log in with SSO, and any new team members must sign up with their team address. Guests can still sign up and log in with any email address and password. 

SSO optional

SSO will be optional when admins choose Anyone can login in with either SSO or a password

All users, including guests, can log in and sign up with SSO or with any email address and password.

New users

New users can either be invite-only, or automatically created when they sign in using their team email address SSO. 

2-factor authentication (2FA) 

If 2-factor authentication (2FA) is enabled through your SSO provider (such as Google or Okta), this will carry over into Slab as well. All users will then be required to sign in with 2FA.
