Organization Login Settings allows admins to manage organization-level login settings quickly and efficiently to define how their users can login to Proofpoint Essentials.


Configure Organization Login Settings:


  1. Navigate to Administration > Account Management > Authentication

  2. In the Login Settings section, configure the following:

    Single Sign-On (SSO) Settings


  3.  Choose how users log in with SSO:

    - Select SSO provider (default)
    Users can log in by entering their username/passwords or selecting a enabled Identity Provider(s).


    Login directly with (IdP)
    Users are automatically directed to a login page of the selected Identity Provider.


    Note. The Local account login and Sign In With Microsoft (OAuth) controls will disappear when Logging in directly with an I.dentity Provider as they are no longer applicable.

  4. Local account login
    Controls whether the username and password fields for local login are visible on the Admin Console login screen.


  5. Sign In With Microsoft (OAuth)
    Sign In With Microsoft (OAuth) is another authorization protocol that Microsoft permits to allow users access to third party applications (Proofpoint Essentials) using their Microsoft login credentials. Microsoft (OAuth) does not require an Identity Provider to be setup to allow users to login via Single Sign-On (SSO).

    By default, Sign In With Microsoft (OAuth) is enabled unless previously turned off. This control replaces Disable login with Microsoft credentials that was previously located on the Azure Directory Sync Page.    


  6. Click Save
