How do I add SSO apps for LastPass users?

    App integrations (that is, SSO applications) are common online tools used within your company for which a LastPass admin has set up a single sign-on integration. This allows you to sign in to those apps using the same credentials that you use for LastPass.

    Note: LastPass Business accounts allow the addition of three SSO apps. For more information on how to upgrade your account with the Advanced SSO add-on, see How do I upgrade my LastPass Business account with an add-on?

    Terminology

    SSO apps
    Apps are the site entries stored in a LastPass user's vault and accessed by that user for which a LastPass admin has set up single sign-on.
    You can sign in to your SSO app and launch any of your web applications without re-entering your credentials.

    Add the SSO app to LastPass

    1. Log in with your email address and master password to access the new Admin Console at https://admin.lastpass.com.
    2. If prompted, complete steps for multifactor authentication (if it is enabled for your account).
    3. Go to Applications > SSO apps.
    4. Select Add app in the upper-right navigation (or Search the catalog if you're adding your first app).
    5. Search for and select your app from the catalog (or Add an unlisted app if you can't find your app).

      Tip: Browse a list of our SSO app integrations, or if your SSO app is not listed you can add it manually by selecting Add an unlisted app.

    6. Click Continue, and you are taken to the Set up LastPass section of the app configuration.

      Fastpath: LastPass automatically fills out all required information in the Set up app section for you.

    Configure the app

    Sign in to your account at the app's website and go to this app’s settings to enable single sign-on. Make sure your app recognizes LastPass as the Identity Provider. Some apps allow you to upload settings in an XML file, while others require you to copy and paste the following information:

    Name in LastPass Value
    Entity ID
    https://identity.lastpass.com
    SSO Endpoint
    https://identity.lastpass.com/SAML/SSOService
    Logout URL
    https://identity.lastpass.com/Login/Logout
    Certificate fingerprint Provided in the Set up app section of the SSO app. If needed, download the LastPass certificate in PEM, DER, or Download metadata (XML) format.
    Certificate fingerprint (SHA256)
    Certificate (PEM)

    Set up LastPass

    1. LastPass needs to know the app’s URI to the Assertion Consumer Service (ACS) to be able to authenticate users. This is provided by your SSO app.

      ACS
      The URL to which LastPass sends authentication assertions after authenticating a user. It may also be known as Post-Back URL, Reply URL, Single Sign-On URL, or Service Provider URL.
      Step-up authentication (passwordless login)
      Enable this setting if you want to require users to confirm their identity using the LastPass Authenticator app upon each login to this SSO app.
      Remember: Passwordless login for SSO apps only supports authentication using stored biometrics (face or fingerprint) via push notification in the LastPass Authenticator app.

    2. Select Advanced settings.
