By default Squadcast lets you create a user via SSO with a configured default Role ( Admin / User / Stakeholder) in the SSO screen as shown below but it can be overwritten by sending an optional custom field role and its value along with the above attribute.


Members trying to log into Squadcast through SSO who aren't already added to the Squadcast platform will be added to the platform by default as Users.

  • Paste the SSO URL we have obtained from Step 5 above in the SAML 2.0 Endpoint text box

  • Enter the domain name of your Organization

Make sure to add the Domain Name of your Organization, for SSO login to work

Configure other options like the default User role and click Save
