About Single Sign-On

Once you sign in to your system with your domain credentials, CloudBees CD single sign-on detects them and uses them to sign in on your behalf. Simply navigate to https://<cloudBees-flow_server>/flow/ and click the Single Sign-On link. The user’s home page appears.

If you want to continue again with your own domain identity on subsequent sessions, click the Single Sign-On link. This link signs you in without prompting you for a username and a password.
