SSO integration#

Lens paid subscription feature


Apart from Lens Desktop Pro, this feature requires a Lens Control Center subscription. Visit Lens Store or contact the sales team to get full access to the features.

Lens Control Center enables you to configure single sign-on (SSO) to the Lens platform through your identity provider (IDP). Lens supports SAML and OIDC authentication standards.

Configure SSO#

To configure SSO:

  1. As a Lens Business ID administrator, navigate to Account > Single Sign-On.

  2. Provide the IDP with the following URLs:

    URL Description
    Assertion Consumer Service URL The endpoint on the Lens side to which the IDP redirects with the authentication response
    Service Provider Entity ID A URL that identifies Lens as a service provider

    Redirect URI: The endpoint on the Lens side to which the IDP redirects with the authentication response.

  3. If the IDP administrator provided you with configurations, click the following buttons to complete the automatic setup:
