Wouldn’t it be nice to have one less password to worry about? We’ve made it easier for admins on all Autodesk plans to do exactly this. With single sign-on (SSO), you can maintain one email/password combo per user. For our Premium admins, you can take the benefits of SSO even further by combining it with directory sync – so you can manage users across your organization and Autodesk’s user management platform at the same time, directly from your organization’s directory groups.
No one likes to keep track of too many passwords. With SSO, users can access Autodesk products and services with the same email and password they use to sign into your organization, giving them one less password to remember.
Password policies applied to your organization are also applied across all Autodesk products and services, so if users are already signed into your organization, they won’t need to sign in again to access Autodesk – nice and easy for both you and your users!
If there are any permission changes within your organization, these changes will automatically be applied to Autodesk access too. For example, if an employee’s email access is revoked, they will also lose access to Autodesk – saving you time from having to change permissions manually.
If you’re a Premium admin, enable directory sync to keep user details synchronized with your organization’s user directory. With automated syncing between your organization’s directory groups and Autodesk teams, user details stay current across Autodesk products and services.
Autodesk access can also be managed within your organization’s user directory. Premium admins can fully automate user invites, removals, and product assignments using directory sync. You don’t have to send manual invitations to add users to Autodesk teams anymore, and you can remove users from synced groups –all from your organization’s directory.
Using directory sync with SSO lets you unlock new value for your business
Combining the automation of directory sync with the security of SSO ensures user account information is consistent across multiple directories. With directory sync, you can eliminate assigning subscriptions manually, reduce inactive licenses, and optimize security.
Using these two technologies together helps organizations:
- Jump start and scale projects faster: Eliminate manual license assignments by connecting your organization’s directory with Autodesk’s user management platform to easily provision new users with automated group and product assignments.
- Realize the most value from your subscriptions: Keep clean user lists and easily reassign unused subscriptions when employees join or leave the company.
- Optimize your security: Safeguard your intellectual property and reduce liability by using directory sync together with SSO to lessen project risks and ensure information is only in the right hands, at the right times.
Our goal is to help you reduce the number of repetitive tasks involved with user management, so you can spend more time driving business value.
Begin by enabling SSO for your organization by following our single sign-on instructions. If you have a Premium plan, once you’ve enabled SSO, you can follow our directory sync instructions to connect your organization’s directory to Autodesk Account.
