EchoSpan's Enterprise 360-Degree Feedback and Performance Review tools
provide Single sign-on (SSO) support via the SAML 2.0 protocol. Single sign-on
makes the use of web applications more convenient and secure by allowing your
employees to log in to multiple applications using a single username and
Setting up your EchoSpan account for SSO is easy. All you need to do to start
the integration process is contact your client manager. He or she will evaluate
your account for SSO technical readiness and provide you instructions on how to
set up your company online. Most common SSO setups can be completed same-day.
To prepare for SSO-integration with EchoSpan, please review the following
- Your organization has an existing SAML-based, SSO platform for internal
or external applications.
- You must have a current Performance Review or 360-Degree
Feedback account (the Enterprise Edition is currently supported).
- You will need to have a complete employee roster ready to provide to
EchoSpan for all users that should have SSO access to the tool. Since the
format of this file varies based on the features in your account, please
contact your client manager for a current template. On accounts where roster
updates are performed automatically, this step can be skipped. Make sure
that all users in the list provided have unique email addresses.
- Be ready to add an EchoSpan test user into your internal SSO user
repository. An EchoSpan test account is optional, but greatly assists in
troubleshooting issues that may arise during the setup process.
- Be ready to send your EchoSpan client manager a copy of your company's
SAML metadata file. Once received, we'll import your metadata and provide
you certificate file for your network.
