Salesforce offers an IdP (Identity Provider) for Salesforce which can act as a single sign-on identity provider, allowing end users to easily and securely access many web and mobile applications with one login. Drift users can use this as an IdP via our authentication setup page.
To set this up, first you'll need to navigate to the Identify Provider settings on the Salesforce Setup Quick Find bar and click the link to the New Service Provider Connected App area of the screen.
Next, you'll need to fill out the required info and click the Enable SAML check box to enter your Drift-specific SAML settings. (For further info on SSO for Customer Identity Providers, see the related content section at the bottom of this article.)
After you have accomplished this, you'll need to utilize the metadata from Salesforce so you can upload it into drift. To do this, click the "Download Metadata" button. (See screenshot below for guidance.)
Your metadata will be downloaded to an .XML file on your computer. Once downloaded, you can then upload the .XML file into your Drift settings under Security.
Signed Assertion note for SAML with Salesforce IdP:
Before finalizing your set up, make sure you disable signed assertion on the same page as Salesforce IdP does not support this.
