How To Use Single Sign-on (SSO) | Setup and Integrate NCEdCloud

Thanks to the new NCEdCloud Single Sign-on (SSO) capability, all Clever users in North Carolina may now access their accounts by utilizing their NCEdCloud login credentials. We’ll go over how to set up Single Sign-on on your account using Clever Ncedcloud, and Ncedcloud powerschool Service in this post.

How Does Authentication Using SSO Operate?

  • From the Clever login page, a user signs in to Clever using the district’s Identity Provider (IDP), such as Google, Active Directory, etc.
  • By using the district’s IDP, Clever authenticates the user.
  • Following user verification, Clever generates a “token,” or a piece of data, that serves as the user’s identity and allows for a successful login.
  • The user has successfully logged into the application!

How is NCEdCloud Single Sign-on (SSO) configured?

  • Go to the official website and sign in using your credentials.
  • Navigate to the dashboard of your account and choose SSO & Portal > SSO Settings.
  • Click on the “Add Login Method” menu item.
  • From the Identity Provider menu, choose “Active Directory Authentication” now.
  • Next, either upload the file directly or input the URL for NCEdCloud Metadata.xml.
  • Select “Save.”
