How to enable SSO on admin portal without affecting app sync?

1 0 0

Good Morning All,


Hope you are well.


We are looking to add Single Sign-On (SSO) to the Shopify admin portal using SAML\Shibboleth. We just had a couple of questions:


1. Can we enable SSO on the admin portal but keep the shopfront open to all?

2. Will enabling SSO effect the syncing with our integrated app "vendhq" (VendHQ does not currently support SSO)


Any help much appreciated.


Kind Regards

Hello @GlennB 


I'm Manish from miniOrange. To answer your questions,


  1. miniOrange does provide a solution that can help you achieve Single Sign-On for your users into the Shopify Admin dashboard using Shibboleth as the IDP and you can keep Storefront public at the same time. 
  2. No, the SSO solution will not disrupt your syncing process with VendHQ.


You can learn more about our solution from this [LINK] for securing Shopify admin dashboard login. We provide an SSO solution for both Shopify Plus and Non-Plus with support for any identity providers supporting all the Standard Authentication Protocols like SAML 2.0, OAuth 2.0, OpenID, JWT, LDAP etc for SSO.


We offer a Single Sign-On (SSO) solution tailored for Shopify storefronts as well, enabling customers stored in any identity provider to access the Shopify store with their existing IdP credentials. Learn more from this [LINK]
