❗Important

You must be an Admin to access the SSO/SCIM page in Team Settings and to set up SSO for your team.


Set up Connection with your Identity Provider

To get started, you’ll need to set up a connection for Guru SSO (also known as a connector) with your Identity Provider (IdP). To set up a connector, you'll need some information from the SSO/SCIM page in Guru.

To access your Guru SSO Integration page:

  1. Go to your Guru Team Settings page.
  2. Select SSO/SCIM in the left sidebar.

Things Guru's SSO Integrations page provides

Things you'll need from your IDP

IdP Single Sign-On URL

Audience URI

X.509 Certificate

Here is a list of Identity Providers we've worked with in the past:


✍️ Note

We only support SSO through Google and standard SAML using a third party identity provider.


Set Up SSO in Guru

Now that you've gathered information from your IdP, an Admin on your team can enable SSO by filling in the required information on your team's SSO/SCIM page.

Setting up SSO in Guru
  1. Navigate to the SSO/SCIM page in Team Settings in your Guru app.
  2. Fill in all the required fields with the information you gathered from your IDP:
  • Identity Provider Single-Sign on URL
  • Identity Provider Issuer
  • X.509 Certificate

3. Choose your Provision Type:

  • Automatically add users. Guru will add the user to the team the first time they log in via SSO.
  • Require users to be invited. You must explicitly invite users to your Guru Team (These users must additionally have access to your IDP.).

4. Select your Session Timeout in days (default = 14 days).

5. When you're ready to turn it on change the SSO state to Enabled.


✍️ Note

If you use Google Suite, Google Auth (Logging in via the "Sign in with Google" button on the sign in page) is available on any Guru plan. However, as an Admin you cannot limit end users to only sign in via Google Auth.
