Generic SSO

With the generic SSO configuration, Snow Atlas supports configuring an SSO provider that is not supported through a first party integration.


The generic single sign-on application registration is configured using OpenID Connect (OIDC). The configuration is not directly connected to a specific vendor, but you can use it when the provider that you have selected is not specified as an SSO provider supported on Snow Atlas.


The generic single sign-on is limited to standard OIDC functionality. As generic SSO cannot respond to provider-specific logic, you must refer to your provider’s documentation to find out if a standardized OIDC flow meets the security requirements of your selected provider.

Supported features

  • ServiceProvider (SP) initiated SSO when you attempt to sign in from Snow Atlas

  • User provisioning to create the user on first sign in, when the feature is enabled in Snow Atlas


  • The user is an administrator or equivalent in the SSO provider.

  • The user is a Snow Atlas system administrator.
