  • Auth0 SAML

  • Azure AD

  • CyberArk SAML

  • Google OAuth

  • Generic SAML

  • Google SAML

  • JumpCloud SAML

  • Microsoft AD FS

  • Okta

  • OneLogin

  • OpenID Connect

  • PingFederate

  • PingOne

  • VMware Workspace One


Setup

In order to get this set up, please get in touch with us at hi@launchnotes.io or on live chat - let us know which Authentication option you're looking to use and we'll then provision a private page for you on your account by either converting your existing page, or adding an additional page to your account.

When logged in, you can identify that you're on a Private Page by the 🔒Lock Icon near your project name and the appearance of an Authorization tab, on the Admin navbar, and also a "Private" icon on the heading of every page:

Authorization - SSO

If you are using SSO for authorization to your page, you can update, add and remove domains that you wish to grant access to your private page

Authorization - SAML

Once you let us know which SAML provider you're using, we'll initiate the secure connection at our end. To complete this, navigate to the Authorization tab, then select the Manage Authentication button - This will take you to our Authorization management platform, WorkOS, which will guide you through the remainder of your setup.

In the example below, we've used Okta the IdP for a SAML connection:

Once you have set up your provider, users who wish to view your page will be prompted to sign in using your SAML connection in order to gain access to the page

Notifications

You can select whether to hide the content of notifications from your private page via email and Slack, and also whether you'd like to auto-subscribe new users to your page the first time they visit, under Settings > Security > Notification Security
