For Enterprise and Unlimited accounts, DF Studio offers three primary options for authentication. Not all accounts support all options, as custom configuration is necessary to set up the authentication methods supported on any particular account. This document details the features of each login method. See Log In to DF Studio for information about the login process.
This is the default authentication method for DF Studio. A unique username and password exists for each user on the account, and an account name is shared by multiple users. Provide all three pieces of information to log in to DF Studio and access the assets and Projects within the specified account.
This functions identically to the standard login option, but the user must only supply a username and password. The account name is set automatically when the user clicks a visual button corresponding to the desired account.
Single Sign-On (SSO)
User accounts configured for SSO access are managed by their respective organizations; therefore, users do not have a separate username or password for DF Studio. Instead, many users will follow a link in their organization’s existing SSO dashboard to launch DF Studio. Others will click a visual button on the DF Studio login page, launching the SSO application (which is external to DF Studio).
Each DF Studio user account is configured for standard login or SSO, never both. To access a user account which has not been configured for SSO authentication, click the link to use the standard login form.
The SSO application allows the user to log in to the existing organizational account (typically the same account used for corporate email, etc.). Once authentication is successful, a secure token is transmitted to DF Studio, verifying the user’s identity, and DF Studio grants access to the user’s account.
User accounts configured for SSO access will need to configure a unique application password in order to access DF Studio using external applications that do not support SSO authentication, such as DFS Speed Link. See Manage Application Passwords and API Credentials for a guide to this feature.
SSO users will also be unable to modify their email address within DF Studio. See SSO Authentication and Email Address for further details.
