How do I Enable Remote Authentication On My Account?

This article will show you how to enable remote authentication on your ScreenSteps account. Remote authentication allows you to control access to your ScreenSteps account by logging users in on your server. This means that you don't have to manage users on ScreenSteps. You can use your existing user authentication systems to authenticate users before they view your ScreenSteps content.

Two remote authentication modes are available, SAML and ScreenSteps Remote Authentication. If your use an identity provider that offers SAML support then you should choose this option. If not, then you will want to use ScreenSteps Remote Authentication to integrate with your existing services.

Before you follow these steps you should have already prepared and set up your server or identify provider to work with ScreenSteps. Please refer to the following chapters of this manual for instructions on setting up various 3rd party services to work with Remote Authentication.
