Step 3: Enabling the SAML single sign-on

As the final step, enable single sign-on in the BigFix Inventory web user interface.

Before you begin

Important: Before enabling single sign-on, create a dedicated administrative user. For more information, see: Creating single sign-on users.


  1. Log in to BigFix Inventory, and click Management > Single Sign-on Settings. Then, click Enable.
  2. Stop the BigFix Inventory server.
  3. Start the BigFix Inventory server. The BigFix Inventory web user interface opens and you are redirected to the login page of the Identity Provider.
  4. Provide the user name and password and click sign-in.
    Note: All user names must be fully-qualified names that contain the full domain name. For example: user@domain.example.
