OneLogin SSO - Setup



In this tutorial, you'll learn how to integrate WestFax with OneLogin's Single Sign on solution.
When you integrate WestFax with OneLogin, you can:

  • Control who has access to the WestFax platform.
  • Enable your users to be automatically signed-in to WestFax with their OneLogin SSO accounts.
  • Manage your accounts in one central location.


To get started, you need the following items:

  • OneLogin Organization Account with at least one user.
  • WestFax Enterprise account with AD/SSO enabled.

Configuring WestFax for SSO

If you have enabled SSO/AD with WestFax you are just a few steps away from enabling single sign on with WestFax.

Here are the steps to get your SSO setup with WestFax:

In order to utilize SSO and Active Directory sync you must have SSO enabled on your account. Contact your account manager and ask them to activate this functionality. There may be some setup fees involved. Your account manager can walk you through the process and provision your account.

After you are SSO enabled you will want to login to the admin tool and go to the SSO tab and you should see a screen like this:

There are three values here you want to copy for use in the Azure setup:

Consume Endpoint:
Redirect Endpoint:
Metadata Endpoint:

You will need these values later. Copy them somewhere for use.

At this point you need to log in to OneLogin Admin panel for your organization. We will create a new App in the Applications section for use with OneLogin

Here are the steps:

  1. Login to OneLogin Admin Dashboard
    With your admin account log into the OneLogin Admin portal cloud website.
  2. Go to Applications -> Applications

  3. Click "Add App" Button on the top Right

  4. In the Search Box type SAML Custom Connector

    You will see a few items. Choose the one that is labeled: SAML Custom Connector (Advanced) and the author is OneLogin. This is the initial template for a SAML connection to WestFax.

Now you will want to copy the two values from the Previous step into the WestFax SSO panel. Then we'll also add your OneLogin x.509 certificate as well. You will need to login to the WestFax Admin panel first and click on the SSO section.

Here is the screen you will add your settings.

What is Single Sign On (SSO)?

Single sign on (SSO) is an identification method that allows users access to multiple applications / websites with one set of credentials. The integration of SSO within an enterprise makes password management easier and improves security as workers access applications that are on-premises as well as in the cloud.

WestFax SSO integration allows for seamless sign-on to the Fax Console and makes fax provisioning and permissions management simple.

What is Active Directory Sync?

Active Directory Synchronization is a light-weight application installed on the customers computer that enables simple synchronization of users and fax lines.

An admin creates Security groups for each fax line and then adds and removes users to that group. Each group is bound to a fax number in the WestFax portal. Users can belong to several Security groups which would grant them access to multiple fax numbers.

Need to remove access? Just remove the user from the Security group and they no longer have access to the fax number.
