In any given organization, employees access Software as a Service (SaaS) tools every day. This requires the users to maintain a different set of credentials for every app they use, posing a serious security problem from managing multiple credentials.
Moreover, employees are now expected to access these apps from different locations, be it from their office or at home, or in public areas, increasing the likelihood of security issues. SSO can help your employees login seamlessly into Scanova. They are spared from the need of having to remember their username or password.
What is Single Sign-On (SSO)?
Single Sign-On is a service that permits a user to use one set of login credentials (e.g., domain name, user name) to access multiple applications.
SSO works behind the scenes to let users securely sign into all of your business applications. Your identity provider will manage the authentication process for all of your organization’s service providers, like Scanova.
With SSO enabled, your team members can access Scanova without another password to manage. They simply sign in to your setup central identity provider and securely gain access to Scanova.
SSO puts the identity provider you already trust in charge of authentication, meaning admins don’t have to manage multiple applications. Whatever process, policies, and security features you’ve set up with your identity provider will apply to your team as they access Scanova.

Here’s a walkthrough of how Scanova SSO works for end-users:
- John is a field officer working for a Marketing Organization XYZ in VA, USA. His email address is John@XYZ.nova, and his company uses a SAML compatible Federated Identity Provider service (such as Microsoft ADFS).
- John wants to use the Scanova application to create QR Codes for their brand
- John contacts our customer relations team to initiate the setup by providing the necessary details
- Scanova’s customer relations executive will setup the SSO integration via WorkOS for the company’s domain – XYZ.nova
- Once the setup is complete, the company’s IT administrator will configure their SAML compatible Federated Identity Provider service (such as Microsoft ADFS) on their end
- Once the setup is done, SSO is enabled and can be accessed by the account owner and shared users owning domain – XYZ.nova
- In case of shared users (How to create shared users?), SSO will be by default enabled for all existing & new shared users with the domain – XYZ.nova
- User goes to the Scanova login with SSO page and enters the domain name – XYZ.nova
9. User clicks this Login button, and it opens the XYZ organization ADFS authentication page
10. Upon successful login, the XYZ organization ADFS authentication page closes, and he is redirected to the Scanova dashboard
