FAQ: How do we set up Single Sign-on for ArcGIS Online for our School


We are often asked for assistance on how to configure Single Sign-on for ArcGIS Online by Education institutions. 

The Esri Education Team has put together a great resource in the form of A Story Map Collection that steps us through this process.    

The collection includes all the information you need to address the benefits of using Single-Sign on, and explanations for the technical jargon we may not all be familiar with such is ‘What is a Name ID‘. 

The identity providers included are:

  • Google SAML
  • Microsoft ADFS SAML
  • ClassLink SAML
  • OKTA SAML
  • Simple SAML RapidIdentity SAML

Learn how to configure Single-Sign with ArcGIS Online with the documentation here.

Another great place for you to ask questions and interact with the Education GIS Community is the Esri Geonet Education Page

If you have further questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to Esri Australia Technical Support via My Esri, support@esriaustralia.com.au or 1800 447 111
