Configuring Zero Sign-on

A Zero Sign-on setup requires an Access deployment with MobileIron UEM, as well as additional configurations forZero Sign-on in Access and in the MobileIron UEM. A Zero Sign-on configuration enables passwordless access to cloud resources by using the user identifying information in the Tunnel certificate for authentication.Zero Sign-on is part of a MobileIron Access deployment. Therefore, before configuring Zero Sign-on ensure that you have an Access deployment and that single sign-on is configured for cloud service providers.

Before you begin 

  • Ensure that you have an Access deployment with MobileIron UEM.

  • MobileIron recommends, where available, that managed app configurations are deployed in MobileIron UEM for your cloud service provider apps, such as for Salesforce, Concur, Box, or Outlook. For a seamless end-user experience, deploy a managed app configuration to streamline the user and organization information input. For information about how to set up a managed app configuration, see the following:
