Federation is a security policy also known as Single Sign On (SSO). It allows users with company emails to login to Obzervr without entering an additional password. Obzervr does not know or hold the company credentials. To use a Federation login, your Organization needs to be set up as Federated. Contact us to discuss your federation requirements. After your organisation is set up as a federated organisation you can set up users as a federated User.
What is a Federated User?
When a User is set up as Federated, the user will be taken to the Federation login registered with the Organisation. The authentication of this user will pass through your organisation's federation services (e.g. ADFS) and the user will not need to provide a password to log in when in your network. For Capture the user will still need to log-in with their organisation's credentials, but this will be on a federation service provided log-in page.

Prior to setting up the Federated User, the Organisation needs to set up as Federated by Obzervr.
