Zendesk SSO solution by miniOrange allows your users to securely sign into Zendesk using their existing login credentials. Credentials here means existing Organizational Identity, Directory, Database, or Identity Provider (Azure Active Directory, Ping, ADFS, Database) where your users are stored.
miniOrange gives you easy and safe access to your Zendesk account with full control of authentication for the application through miniOrange's Zendesk Single Sign-On (SSO) solution.
With miniorange IDP service you can Single Sign-on (SSO) into multiple applications using a single set of login credentials. You can also authenticate your users from other User stores, external Idenitity Provider (IdP) and external directories as well. Single Sign-On (SSO) integration with Zendesk prevents users to log in separately into different applications eliminating user-managed passwords which lessens down the difficulty of remembering and entering username and password repeatedly. With the help of the given guide you can configure Zendesk SSO easily.
Following are Single Sign-on Options for Zendesk :
Enable Single Sign-on for zendesk account using Social and Business account such as Twitter, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, etc.
Enable SAML SSO and authenticate using any User Store or IdP of your choice
