New SAML 2.0 Single Sign On, User Registration Options, & more!

Two important enhancements have been added to the myTurn platform with this release:

  • Initial support for the widely used SAML 2.0 Single Sign On (can be used with Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services/ADFS, LDAP, CAS, and More)
  • For those user myTurn authentication, you can do specify the following fields are required at sign up:
    • Organization
    • Address
    • Phone
    • Date of Birth
    • in addition to email which is always required

˜˜, myTurn can now act as a SAML 2.0 SP (service provider) with your main Identity Provider (iDP). SAML is the “Assertion Markup Language” and one of the most widely supported single sign on (use the same account information for multiple systems) available. This includes compatibility with CAS, Shibboleth (common in university settings) and Microsoft’s Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS), including when using Azure. If you’re interested in our SAML support, please contact us!
