This article is intended for admins. Be aware that integrations are exclusively accessible within the Lifecycle billing plan.
Enhance Velory's security and convenience by enabling your employees to log in using Single Sign-On (SSO). Once configured, both you and your users can either log in through the chosen SSO service or use login credentials (username/password) for access. After configuring SSO, you can choose to disable email/password login. Learn more about this option here.
How to enable SSO
- To access the integration section in company settings, which is exclusive to the Lifecycle billing plan, you might need to upgrade your current billing plan first. Refer to this article for detailed information about billing plans before enabling SSO.
- If you are on the right billing plan - Go to your profile in the navigation bar and click on Settings.
- Under the section integrations, click on SSO.
- In the dropdown list you will be able to see WorkOS and Azure as options. Below you can read more about the particular provider you want to configure through, for more information.
Currently, we offer support for popular options like Azure and WorkOS. WorkOS provides various choices for your selection. If your SSO provider isn't listed, reach out to Velory support, and we'll explore adding your specific provider.
Once you've activated SSO sign-in, the Velory login page will look like the example below.
Azure as your SSO provider
If you select Azure as your SSO provider, after you click on Configure via Velory you will be directed to a checklist that provides precise written instructions and a step-by-step guide on configuring your Velory account with SSO through Azure.
Every step in the setup process must be finalized for the configuration to operate correctly. Upon completion, you'll see specific fields requesting accurate details obtained from the setup steps. Once all the required information is filled in under Authentication Details, simply click Save changes to proceed.
Before inviting other users, it's recommended to test the SSO login on your own account post-configuration. This ensures proper setup and functionality before more invitation to others are sent.
WorkOS as your SSO provider
Choosing WorkOS as your SSO provider requires adding your domain (e.g., velory.com), followed by clicking Add domain and then Configure via WorkOS. This action will direct you to a setup page powered by WorkOS. There you will see a list of all available identity providers that WorkOS offer. Selecting your preferred provider will guide you to a checklist with detailed instructions and a step-by-step guide for configuring your SSO.
After completing the configuration, you'll notice on the Velory integration page that your settings have been successfully updated.

Enable email/password login option
When you've set up your SSO provider, you'll see a setting called Enable email/password login option below your active integration.
By default, this setting is enabled, allowing users to log in using either SSO or email/password on Velory's login page.
If the setting is disabled, the only login option will be through SSO.
