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, clicking a visual button launches 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 do not have a separate password for DF Studio, and therefore will not be able to log in to the DFS Speed Link application. When access to DFS Speed Link is required, these users should create an Upload Key instead. (See Upload Using DFS Speed Link With an Assignment Key for a guide to the uploading process.)
