This SSO implementation is based on SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) and allows your application to sign in an existing GoodData user. The authentication is done by exchanging authentication and authorization data between the parties, not by username and password. 

SAML SSO only supports SHA2 or higher digital signature algorithms and digest algorithms as part of the assertion.

GoodData supports SAML Identity Provider-initiated scenario only:


Configure the following settings:

SAML version2.0 (versions 1.0 and 1.1 are not supported)
Post back URL (destination)https://secure.gooddata.com/gdc/account/samllogin
