Introduction

If you are looking to set up Single Sign-On and User Provisioning for One Login please follow this article. Single Sign-On will grant the ability to sign into an Application without the need for sign-in details. User Provisioning will allow for user profile fields to be synced over and updated.
All information is fed into Blink. Changes to any profile cannot be done in Blink, only within One Login.

If you are looking to set this feature up please ensure you are an Administrator within your Blink Instance and you will need a secret token. This can be aquired by reaching out to support@joinblink.com. This will be generated and sent back to you wihtin the same week this is requested.

What Features are supported with this:

  • Single Sign-On via SAML
  • User provisioning which allows you to create, update and disable OneLogin Users in Blink
If you wish to only set up Single Sign-On, please complete Step 1, 2 and 4 below. If you wish to configure User Provisioning, please complete Step 1, 2, 3 and 4.

  4. Go under the Parameters tab to configure field mappings between OneLogin and Blink.

    3. On Optional Fields, the Status column shows whether a Blink field is being mapped at all.
    4. Required Parameters need to have a corresponding OneLogin field for the user provisioning to work.
      1. For SAML NameId (Subject) and scimusername, we recommend keeping Email as the default value
      2. For employeeNumber, if you do not have a field in OneLogin holding a unique employee identifier for your organization (i.e., an employee id number), please use OneLogin ID
    5. Optional Parameters

      2. A pop-up will appear. Under Value, select the OneLogin field you wish to map to the Blink field. Under Flags, tick Include In User Provisioning and Skip if the value is blank. Finally, click Save.

      4. Once configured, the Status of the field will change to Enabled
