SSO Login Services

Once Devtron is installed, it has a built-in admin user with super admin privileges with unrestricted access to all Devtron resources. We recommended to use a user with super admin privileges for initial and global configurations only and then switch to local users or configure SSO integration.

Only users with super-admin privileges can create SSO configuration. Devtron uses Dex for authenticating a user against the identity provider.

To add/edit SSO configuration, go to the SSO Login Services section of Global Configurations.

Supported SSO Providers

Below are the SSO providers which are available in Devtron. Select one of the SSO providers (e.g., GitHub) to configure SSO:

Google GitHub GitLab Microsoft LDAP OpenID Connect OpenShift

Dex implements connectors that target specific identity providers for each connector configuration. You must have a created account for the corresponding identity provider and registered an app for client key and secret.

Refer the following documents for more detail.



1. Create new SSO Configuration

Make sure that you have a super admin access.

  • Go to the Global ConfigurationsSSO Login Services and click any SSO Provider of your choice.

  • In the URL field, enter the valid Devtron application URL where it is hosted.

  • For providing redirectURI or callbackURI registered with the SSO provider, you can either select Configuration or Sample Script.

  • Provide the client ID and client Secret of your SSO provider (e.g. If you select Google as SSO provider, then you must enter $GOOGLE_CLIENT_ID and $GOOGLE_CLIENT_SECRET in the client ID and client Secret respectively.)

  • Select Save to create and activate SSO Login Service.


  • Only single SSO login configuration can be active at one time. Whenever you create or update any SSO configuration, it will be activated and used by Devtron and previous configurations will be deleted.

  • Except for the domain substring, URL and redirectURI remains same.

2. Update SSO Configuration

You can change SSO configuration anytime by updating the configuration and click Update. Note: In case of configuration change, all users will be logged out of Devtron and will have to login again.

3. Configuration Payload

  • type : Any platform name such as (Google, GitLab, GitHub etc.)

  • name : Identity provider platform name

  • id : Identity provider platform which is a unique ID in string. (Refer to

  • config : User can put connector details for this key. Platforms may not have same structure but common configurations are clientID, clientSecret, redirectURI.

  • hostedDomains : Domains authorized for SSO login.

Next Steps

After configuring an SSO for authentication, you need to add users in Devtron, else your users won't be able to log in via SSO.

In case you have enabled auto-assign permissions in Microsoft or LDAP, relevant permission groups must also exist in Devtron for a successful login.
