In order for your organization to use single sign-on with your approved blackbaud solutions, you will need to make sure you meet the requirements below:

1.  The Single Sign-on configuration must be completed by a Site administrator for your organization through (to become a site administrator review "I need to become a site administrator").
*Note* we recommend that this be completed by your IT staff who is familiar with your organization's identity provider.  A user who has admin rights in a product is not necessary a site administrator.

2.  The user setting up this configuration must have a Blackbaud ID as this is the unique identifier for each individual.  
*Note* if you do not have a Blackbaud ID, create one now.

3.  To enable Single Sign-on you must use one of the methods below supported by Blackbaud ID;  
  • Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AD)
  • Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 IdPs, such as Google G Suite, OneLogin, Shibboleth, or Central Authentication Services (CAS)
  • Microsoft Active Directory Federated Services (ADFS)
  • Okta
If your organization meets the requirements please continue with the set-up steps below and refer to our help documentation:
