Single Sign-On (SSO) Support

Single Sign-On (SSO) Support

Concourse supports SSO through the use of the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) standard that is native to many learning management and portal systems.

Especially as a hosted solution this type of SSO is preferable to other authentication options like LDAP as no user passwords need to be passed from your intranet and no firewall exceptions need to be configured.

If you would like to support custom SSO, LDAP, CAS, or other authentication options an integration middleware tool like Apidapter can be used to translate these requested into LTI launches.
