Add OneLogin as a single sign-on provider

Feature coming soon: South America (São Paulo) region

Prerequisites
  • Single Sign-on > Provider > Add, Delete, Edit, View permissions
  • Admin role in your organization’s OneLogin account
  • OneLogin Desktop Single Sign-on (SSO) unavailable
  • User email addresses are the same in both OneLogin and Genesys Cloud

Add Genesys Cloud as an application that organization members can access with the credentials to their OneLogin account.

Notes:
  • Genesys Cloud does not support assertion encryption for single sign-on third-party identity providers. The Genesys Cloud log in service requires Transport Layer Security (TLS). Since the channel is encrypted, there is no need to encrypt parts of the message.
  • Administrators can optionally disable the default Genesys Cloud login and enforce authentication using an SSO provider only. For more information, see Configure Genesys Cloud to authenticate with SSO only.
  • Administrators can choose to store one additional certificate to ensure business continuity. If one certificate becomes invalid or expires, the backup certificate will preserve the integration.
  • There is a general problem when a Service Provider (SP) receives a SAML response from an Identity Provider (IdP) and their system clocks are not in sync. This problem can result in users getting locked out of their single sign-on when logging in. The problem might be caused by the length of the clock skew between the SP and the IdP. Clock skews between Genesys Cloud and your identity provider cannot be greater than 10 seconds.

    2. Download and open the SAML Metadata file.

    4. Copy the URL following “Location =,” for example:
      https://your-organization/onelogin.com/trust/saml2/http-redirect/sso/123456
