We support SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language), which is an industry-standard way for identity providers like Okta and OneLogin to securely pass authorization credentials to Avocode. Enterprise administrators can rest easy knowing that their users' Avocode accounts are secured by the same identity provider that they already trust.

How to log into Avocode using Single Sign-On (SSO)?

  1. Make sure that your team has SSO enabled.
  2. Go to https://app.avocode.com, the desktop app, or your organization’s personal Avocode login link.
  3. Click the "Login via SSO" link at the bottom right corner of the login page.
  4. Enter your email address and click "Continue".
  5. This will take you to your identity provider for login.
  6. You are now logged into your Avocode account.
