A round-up of all improvements and changes to the Buzz platform in versions v3.0.201 available on October 29, 2020.

Improved SAML domain authentication!

We have updated our SAML authentication to give you:

  • The ability to configure your domain to use multiple Identity providers (IdPs).
  • A smoother login workflow (no more blocked popups/content!).
  • Improved security.

In order to take advantage of these improvements, including sandbox testing, follow these steps. We recommend you upgrade as soon as possible, as we will be deprecating the old SAML setup (timing to be announced).


In this release, we also added the option to set up a Logout redirect URL for domains configured  with single sign-on (SSO). This is managed on the Domain settings > Authentication card.


  • Fixed an issue in the Needs grading screen where trying to open activities that had been deleted or hidden from students caused the Needs grading screen to freeze. 
  • Improved accessibility for some images in the Resource library.


Updates in version 2020.10.28.5146.

  • Domain Data: New configuration options for SAML authentication.
  • General system improvements.
