About single sign-on

Once you sign in to your system with your domain credentials, CloudBees CD/RO single sign-on detects them and uses them to sign in on your behalf. Simply navigate to https://<cloudBees-cd-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.

For information about enabling single sign-on at your enterprise see SAML single sign-on or Kerberos single sign-on.
