ADSelfService Plus supports Active Directory (AD)-based single sign-on (SSO) for Zendesk and any other SAML-enabled application. Upon enabling SSO for Zendesk in ADSelfService Plus, all users have to do is simply log in to their Windows machines using their AD domain credentials. Once logged in, users can securely access Zendesk in one click without having to enter their username and password again.
ADSelfService Plus supports both Identity Provider (IdP) and Service Provider (SP)-initiated SSO for Zendesk.
IdP-initiated SSO for Zendesk: Users need to log in to the ADSelfService Plus self-service portal first, and then click on the Zendesk icon on the Applications dashboard to access Zendesk.
SP-initiated SSO for Zendesk: Users can access their Zendesk domain via a URL or bookmark. They will automatically be redirected to the ADSelfService Plus portal for login. Once they've signed on, they'll be automatically redirected and logged into the Zendesk portal.
