Auth0 SSO Integration Guide

Auth0 is a single-sign on provider, which makes it easy to manage your SAAS application logins and permissions. Follow this simple guide to get your Auth0 account tied to your PagerDuty account.



You must be the Account Owner of your PagerDuty account in order to make these changes. Additionally, SSO capabilities within PagerDuty are only available on our Business and Digital Operations plans. Please contact our Sales team if you are interested in upgrading your plan.

  13. Congratulations! You should now be able to log in to PagerDuty using Auth0.


Can the account owner log in without SSO if username and password authentication is disabled?

Even with this username and password authentication disabled for users, the Account Owner will always be able to login with their username and password as a backup option should you need to change the SSO configuration or disable it completely.

Why don’t I see the Single Sign-on option when I go to Account Settings?

SSO is only available in accounts on our current Professional, Business and Digital Operations plans. Please contact our sales team if you are interested in upgrading your plan.
