Within Teamwork, you can submit a request for single sign-on (SSO) to be activated for your site.

Note: Teamwork’s SSO offering is part of the paid Advanced Security add-on which you can purchase in addition to your Teamwork subscription.


Teamwork configuration


You will first need to download your Identity Provider metadata - an XML file that describes the Identity Provider that you set up.

To submit your request, click your profile avatar in the top right of your site and select Settings from the dropdown menu.

Required details:

  • Name and Email - technical point of contact name.
    • Typically somebody technical who understands how the protocol works and ideally has set up SSO/SAML before.
  • Attach file - upload your IDP SAML Metadata file as an attachment.
    • This is a metadata.xml file that contains details about your configuration.
    • Technical details including our metadata and fields to include are available at:
      • https://yoursitename.teamwork.com/singlesignon/
        • Show this page to your technical contact.

You can optionally use the Additional information field to add more details to your submission.

Click Send at the bottom of the form to submit your SSO request.

Once received, our security team will enable SSO and the sign-in option will be made available on your site.
