SSO & The Absorb Learn Mobile App

Follow

This article contains information applicable to the refreshed Admin Experience (AE) and previous versions of the Absorb LMS product.

Introduction

This article provides details and instructions on how to configure Single Sign-On (SSO) for your learners who use the Absorb Learn Mobile App

  • Learners with a username/password combination can manually log in to your organization's Absorb LMS portal using the Absorb Learn Mobile App.

  • If your organization uses Service Provider Initiated Mode SAML SSO, you do not need to take any further steps.  Your learners are able to authenticate into the mobile app using that current SSO configuration.

  • If your organization uses Identity Provider Initiated Mode SAML SSO, your learners will not be able to authenticate into the mobile app unless you do one of the following:

    • Option A: Update your Absorb LMS portal SSO configuration from Identity Provider (IdP) Initiated Mode to Service Provider (SP) Initiated Mode.

    • Option B: Add a new SSO configuration using Service Provider (SP) Initiated Mode, and associate it with a new LMS Route.
