There are two main steps required to set up SSO using OneLogin on ImageKit:
OneLogin subscription Although you may use a free account on OneLogin to set up and test the SSO application, having a premium OneLogin subscription is recommended for seamless role provisioning for your users. Read more here.
First, you need to create an application on OneLogin and generate a SAML Metadata XML file.
- 2.Navigate to the "Applications" screen using the top navigation menu
- 3.Click the "Add App" button, then search for "SAML Custom Connector"
- 4.Choose the correct "Advanced" connector as shown below
- 5.Input a name for the application, we will use "ImageKit" for this guide
Click "Save" and wait until you are redirected to the application page.
Create a SAML application
Choose the SAML Custom Connector (Advanced)
On the application page, navigate to the 'Configuration' screen.
On this screen, we will configure various authentication parameters:
ACS (Consumer) URL Validator
ACS (Consumer) URL
Single Logout Url
SAML nameID format
Leave the rest of the values as they are.
Note: Name ID is the unique email address of the user that will be used to identify them on ImageKit.

Navigate to the "SSO" tab and change the value of "SAML Signature Algorithm" to
You may also note an alternate link to obtain SAML Metadata XML below it.
SSO signature settings
Now you need to specify three custom keys that ImageKit uses to authorize and provision your users:
The ImageKit ID of your organization account.
The full name of the user.
The role to assign to the user on ImageKit that would decide their access privileges.
Accepted values of this key in the SAML response sent to ImageKit are:

The final computed value of this claim must be one of the accepted role strings from the list specified alongside.
To do this, you need to create "Custom User Fields" on OneLogin. Read the official guide here or follow the quick version below.
Navigate to "Users > Custom User Fields", and create user attributes that will be mapped and sent to ImageKit during authentication.
Custom User Fields
Back on the application page under the "Parameters" section, ensure that these fields are included correctly in your OneLogin user object.
SAML attribute statements
Assign users to the ImageKit application by going to the Users section, selecting a user, and navigating to the Applications tab on the user's details page.
Save your assignments before proceeding further.
Assign a user to the app
Navigate to the application setup screen and use the popover menu highlighted here to download the SAML Metadata XML file.
Save it in a safe location. You will need to upload this XML file to your ImageKit account in a later step.
Download and save the SAML Metadata XML
Enable SSO for all users
If you have administrator privileges on your ImageKit account, you can enable SSO for all the users in your account as follows:
- 3.Copy and paste the contents of the file into the Metadata XML input box.
- 4.Click on the 'Save' button.
Your users should now be able to use OneLogin SSO to log into ImageKit.
SSO users would need to initiate their very first login on ImageKit through the ImageKit app by navigating to their dashboard on OneLogin.
After their first login, they may use the ImageKit SSO login page for signing in to ImageKit directly. Read more here.

You can disable SSO login for the users on your ImageKit account by deleting the Metadata XML.
