Authentication and Authorization (SaaS)

Sysdig supports authenticating users using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), Google OAuth, and OpenID Connect protocols and certifies different Identity Providers (IdPs) that use these protocols, including but not limited to, Okta, OneLogin, and Azure Active Directory.

You can use Sysdig Monitor and Sysdig Secure with the following user authentication and authorization methods:

  • Configure your Identify Provider (IdP) for the Sysdig application.
  • Users are assigned to the application in the IdP.
