Admin Privileges

This guide requires a user who is both an admin of OneLogin, as well as an admin of Vendr.


To kick this off, we'll begin OneLogin's admin area.

  1. Create New SAML Application

    1. First, create a New Application in OneLogin by selecting "Application" in the dropdown under the "Applications" menu.

    2. Search for SAML and select SAML Test Connector (IdP w/attr w/ sign response). Add the application, enable the "Visible in portal" toggle, and click Save.

  2. Info Settings

    1. On the Info settings, enter "Vendr" as the Display Name, and please feel free to include our logo pre-sized for OneLogin.

    2. Click on the Configuration settings on the left navigation bar to proceed.


  3. Configuration Settings

    1. Here, there are two main steps:

      1. Adding key information provided by Vendr

      2. Providing Vendr with OneLogin's metadata and cert file (XML).

    2. In a new window, navigate to Vendr's SSO Settings page.

    3. Select "OneLogin" as your SSO provider, and you'll be provided with four key pieces of information:

      1. Audience URI

      2. Recipient

      3. ACS (Consumer) URL Validator

      4. ACS (Consumer) URL

    4. Copy and paste each of those four values into their respective fields back in your OneLogin tab. You can leave all the other inputs as is, and click Save on the top right to continue.

  4. Copy Metadata.xml

    1. The last step in OneLogin is to get the Metadata.xml content from your new application.

    2. Click the More Actions dropdown on the top right of the screen and click SAML Metadata to download your metadata file.

  5. After downloading, open the file to view and copy the text.

  6. Return to your browser tab with Vendr SSO Settings, and paste the text content of the file into the Metadata XML area.

  7. Click Submit to complete the setup.


Congrats! You've set up OneLogin as the SSO provider for Vendr. Your users can now login into Vendr by providing their work email, and we will route to OneLogin for authentication.

Note: Vendr doesn't currently support SAML IdP logins.

Users will need to initiate their OneLogin authentication using their work email address on the Vendr login page.

You can enable your organization to log in to Vendr with the Login URL below:
