Introduction | Yext Hitchhikers Platform


Single sign-on (SSO) is an authentication method that enables users to access multiple applications with one login and one set of credentials.

Types of SSO Yext Supports

Yext supports two types of SSO integrations: SAML SSO and Signed Link SSO.

SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is the industry-standard SSO solution. If you are already using a SAML Identity Provider such as Okta or Active Directory Federation Services, then you should authenticate via SAML rather than the Signed Link method. This guide will walk you through the steps to set up and configure SAML SSO.

Signed Link SSO is primarily for Partners who want to enable SSO for their customers, and iframe our platform. For instructions to set up Signed Link SSO, visit the Configure Signed Link SSO guide .
