Enable users to sign into Buzz with their school credentials.

Buzz supports the use of Single Sign-on (SSO) features to allow users to sign into one application (for example, a student information system) and be automatically logged into Buzz without needing to re-enter credentials. This feature can help eliminate the need for teachers and students to remember multiple credential sets.

Configure SSO

  1.  Open the More menu in Domain > Details.  
  2. Select Domain settings.
  1. Open the authentication Type dropdown under Authentication:
  • If you don't want to use SSO, select Buzz.
  • If you use CAS:
    • Provide the CAS Server URL.
    • Indicate if you want to Logout of CAS when logging out of Buzz.
    • Indicate if you want to Prevent users from using Buzz credentials.
    • Indicate if you want to Open login in a new window.
  •  If you use Domain, provide the Domain ID and your domain's users will use the selected domain's SSO configuration. For example, if you configured SAML in a district domain, you can point to that school domain to use the district's SAML configuration.
  •  If you use SAML:
    • Choose the signature algorithm you want to use. Your SAML provider can tell you which signature algorithm to use; if you can use either, we recommend SHA-256 as it is more secure.
    • Upload the idp-meta XML file.
    • Indicate if you want to Prevent users from using Buzz credentials.
    • Indicate if you want to Open login in a new window.
  1. Save.
