Info

Login screen is universal for all type of accounts: administrators, regular users, SSO profiles.

SSO

SSO login is automatically used if any SSO profile is configured and enabled:

According the existing configured and SSO profiles the login screen may behave differently if matching credentials are entered:

  • Active Directory: credentials are entered in the Scanshare login screen and they are validated at real time directly with any target Active Directory server configured, multiple servers can be enabled as well. Login priority is: regular user, Active Directory 1, Active Directory 2.
  • Azure: username is entered, sso is entered as password. If an existing SSO Azure profile targeting the same domain of the username entered (username@domain.com) is found Scanshare redirects to the Microsoft Login page to complete the authentication and if successfully redirected back to the Home Dashboard.
  • GSuite: username is entered, sso is entered as password. If an existing SSO GSuite profile targeting the same domain of the username entered (username@domain.com) is found Scanshare redirects to the Google Login page to complete the authentication and if successfully redirected back to the Home Dashboard.
Info

After a successfully SSO login a placeholder user is created in the Users list to keep User general information. No password information are retained and login is always, every time, performed directly with the target SSO profile.

OAuth

If Public Register Link is enabled inside the OAuth settings the login page is composed by two blocks, the New OAuth User while the login block is visible by using the Login button.

In the New OAuth User dialog you can enter the username and the OAuth PIN to create or complete an OAuth registration flow.
