Tags: ACG

Single Sign-on ensures your team can easily access their A Cloud Guru training dashboard directly through your Identity Provider (IdP) application or from the ACG log in page.

We have included Okta SSO connection details specific to your ACG business account. Please follow the steps below to ensure your A Cloud Guru Okta application is created with the appropriate settings and attributes.

Create a SAML 2.0 Okta application
