Improve authentication experience when using SAML /SSO

Improve authentication experience when using SAML /SSO


Currently when the SAML authentication is activated, the user is asked to enter his login before being redirected to the page of the IDP (SAML) .

We would like to remove that 1st step to allow the user to authenticate directly.

When entering the application the user should be asked directly for his login/password et the first page shouldn't be displayed.

The first page allow the application to determine the user type (DB pr FEDERATION) so it still be neede to allow non FEDERATED users to authenticate.

I think having a dedidcated url for DB users would solve that issue


Thank you

Best regards

Definitely agree - this is a really bad user experience currently, and not something that existed under Service Anywhere which went straight in via SSO without an initial login page.
