- How to configure User authorization.
- Once the administrator has applied the SSO configuration in Highfive, users (and the administrator) will only be able to sign in using SSO. To prevent account lockout, test your configuration by selecting Test Configuration at the bottom of your SSO configuration page in Highfive. Additionally, before the configuration has been applied, we recommend that the configuring administrator sign in to Highfive in a browser separate from the one in which he or she will complete testing. If the SSO configuration fails, the administrator will still have access to the account in the other browser and can modify the configuration.
