Single Sign-On

What is SSO?

Single Sign-OnSSO stands for Single Sign-On. One login gives you access to all SSO protected resources, making your experience simpler. For example, if you were to log into your email (hosted by Microsoft), you could then go into D2L (hosted by Desire 2 Learn) without having to log in again.

Important Details
  • You cannot login directly to the Single Sign-On system. You must access it through an application such as Office 365 email.

  • Whenever you attempt to access an application configured for SSO, you will be re-directed to the SSO login page if you have not already logged in. If you have already logged in, you will be given immediate access to the application.

  • SSO keeps you logged in within a browser session. If you close your browser, you will be disconnected.

  • Single Sign-Off is not currently supported. To log out, you must close your browser. Some applications may offer a logout button - do not rely on this. Always close your browser to ensure you are disconnected.

  • SSO requires that you have cookies enabled in your browser.

Helpful Hints
  • Remember to go directly to an application to log in. You cannot login directly to the SSO system.
  • If you are having trouble logging in, try closing your browser and clearing the cache & cookies. You can also try using an alternate browser.
