In this article we will discuss what is SSO or Single Sign-On:

"Single Sign-On is an authentication scheme that allows a user to login with a single ID and password to any of several related, yet independent, software systems"
Basically, it is a one stop shop for all your applications! This is awesome because with SSO we now have the power to enter one username/password and get access to all of our apps in one place.
For example here is our SSO page using Okta:
To access the SSO page from the console navigate to Settings -> Single Sign-On (example GIF below):
