Deprecated_ADFS On-Premises


You can integrate Bridgecrew Cloud with ADFS to enable single sign-on for your organization's users. In parallel, you must invite users from the User Management page. You can choose either one of these methods for assigning permissions (but not both):
(a) Map ADFS groups to Bridgecrew permissions (roles and accounts)
(b) Set permissions per user from within Bridgecrew's User Management page.



This features enables SSO access; in parallel, each user must be added to Bridgecrew Cloud, here.
