Admins can now enable SAML single logout
We’re introducing single logout to increase your account security. With single logout turned on, people can log out from their identity provider (IdP) which would log them out of their Workplace account too. Also, when someone logs out of Workplace, a request would be sent to their IdP to log them out of their IdP session too.
To turn on single logout for your organization’s Workplace, you must:
- Be a system admin or an admin with the permission toChange company settings and configure integrations,
- Already have SSO configured in your Workplace.
When you’re ready, visit the Help Center to learn how to Configure SSO and Edit your SSO preferences to turn on single logout.
