How do I configure sign-in authentication options?

Updated Sep 17, 2021

You can configure user sign in options for users in your account from Sign-in Settings. Videri offers two account authentication methods.

Login Screen

Users log in with a username and password. First-time users must enter their institution-provided username and then enter a password to use with their account. They must then check their institution-provided email account for an account verification email. Once verified, users can log in to Videri.

You can also allow users to log in using their Gmail.

Single Sign-On

Users access Videri from a preconfigured link on an intranet website. This method bypasses the  login screen. To configure SSO for your account, you need the following information from you identity provider:

  • Client ID
  • Client Secret

To enable single sign-on for your account, click the SSO enabled toggle [3]. This option requires users to log in using your institution's identity authorization provider. You can also specify account SSO options for individual users whose accounts were created manually.
