The Adobe Admin Console allows a system administrator to configure domains which are used for login via Federated ID for Single Sign-On (SSO). Once ownership of a domain has been demonstrated by use of a DNS token, the domain can be configured to allow users to log-in to Creative Cloud using e-mail addresses within that domain via an Identity Provider (IdP), either as a software service which runs within the company network and is accessible from the internet or a cloud service hosted by a third party which allows for the verification of user login details via secure communication using the SAML protocol.

One such IdP is OneLogin, a cloud-based service which allows users and apps to be configured for access via a web-portal. This document aims to provide the necessary details to configure OneLogin for use with Adobe SSO.


Before configuring a domain for single sign-on with OneLogin via the Adobe Admin Console, the following requirements should be met:

  • Domain has been claimed in the Adobe Admin Console, showing it as "Active" in the "Domain Status" column
  • A subdomain has been claimed within the OneLogin portal

2. Go to Apps > Add Apps

3. Search for “SAML Test Connector”

4. Select SAML Test Connector w/Attributes

5. Open the “SAML Test Connector” 

6. Go to the SSO menu 

7. Retrieve your certificate via X.509 Certificate  

8. Copy the Issuer URL - this will be the value for IDP Issuer 

9. Copy the SAML Endpoint URL - this will be the value for IDP Login URL

Adobe Admin Console

1. Access the Adobe Admin Console - https://adminconsole.adobe.com/enterprise

2. Go to Identity > Click on the domain to configure SSO settings 

3. Paste the Issuer URL value into IDP Issuer field
