Force IdP authentication

The Force IdP Authentication check box (Figure 1) appears in the Admin Portal configuration for Single Sign-On (SSO):


Figure 1 Force IdP Authentication


Select the Force IdP Authentication check box to force users to re-authenticate with SSO every time they sign into Symphony. When this check box is selected, the forceAuthn attribute in the SAMLRequest sent to IdP of SSO is set to true (the forceAuthn attribute determines whether re-authentication is required).


When the Force IdP Authentication check box is left unchecked, users will not be forced to re-authenticate each time they sign in.
