Supermetrics offers single sign-on (SSO) with either a Google Account or a Microsoft account. This means that signing into Supermetrics with these accounts will trigger an SSO flow, including any 2-factor authentication steps your organization has enabled.
While Supermetrics doesn’t formally support any SSO providers (such as Okta) or SSO using the SAML 2.0 standard, it is considered a secure web authentication (SWA) vendor.
If you have your SSO provider configured to work with your company’s Google or Microsoft account directory, SSO access policies and authentication policies will continue to be enforced while using Supermetrics. Supermetrics has been classified by Okta as an SWA-enabled vendor.
If a user is offboarded from the company account directory, their access to Supermetrics will be denied if they can’t sign in to their company account.
If you're trying to sign in using a Microsoft account and see an error that says Need admin approval, follow these instructions to solve the issue.
We recommend enabling 2-factor authentication (sometimes called 2-step authentication) for any SSO accounts you use with Supermetrics.
- Enable 2-factor authentication for a Google Account
- Enable 2-factor authentication for a Microsoft account
