I would like to set up a new Single Sign-on (SSO)

Our SSO certificate is expiring. How do we update this?

  • To update your certificate, contact Support and provide:
    • Your updated certificate in base64 encoded format

    • A preferred time to complete the certificate update

How do I assign an Exception User?

Assigning Exception Users shows how to assign the Exception User role so that a user can log in with standard authentication or SSO.

I am receiving the following error:
"Sorry, this request could not be processed
Please review the error message below for more information
Sorry - your Anaplan login has failed. Please contact your IT Administrator"

There are multiple reasons why this error is displayed.

  • There may be an inconsistency between the email address stored in the Anaplan workspace compared to the one in the Active directory. Please have your workspace administrator verify with your Active directory administrator to see if an inconsistency exists.
  • We need to see the email address, registered on Anaplan as the SAML NameID. For example: <NameID format="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.1:nameid-format:emailAddress>
  • If the error persists after confirming, please send a SAML trace to
