Do you want to retain total control of your users through a centrally managed system?
Anaplan Single Sign-on (SSO) gives you the ability to place user authentication entirely under your control. This allows Anaplan users to navigate to a dedicated webpage and access the model directly rather than entering a username and password.
Anaplan fully supports SAML 2.0 for Single Sign-on (SSO). This includes password complexity policies, time-of-day access windows, two-factor authentication, and any other controls required by the customer’s security policies.

- Identity Provider IdP URL
- Public IdP certificate in Base64 format
- Key size required = 1024 or 2048

- SAML Idp provider vender/type
- Are you running multiple Idp servers
- Any other non-standard SAML parameters
- SAML SP URL
- Anaplan public certificate / metadata
