Prerequisites

In order to provision your Salesforce users to Elements you need:

Provisioning users

  1. Go to your list of Apps and choose "Elements".

  2. Open the "Elements Settings" tab

  3. Open the "Connect users (SSO)" sub-tab

You should see the following screen:

From the selected list, you can select the individual users that should have access to Elements:

  • Use the checkbox to select the users

  • Click "Connect users" to provision them to Elements App

The system will create a new Elements user account based on the Salesforce user email. If that email already exists in the system, we will simply connect to that account.

Unprovisioning users

In order to take away someone's access from the Elements App:

  • Go to the same screen as explained above

  • Find the users you wish to unprovision and uncheck the checkbox against their account

  • Click "Disconnect users" to commit the operation

Auto-provision new users

At the bottom of the "Connect Users (SSO)" tab, there is an “Assign new Salesforce user to Elements” checkbox.

If turned on, it will give every new user that is added (or signed up!) to your Salesforce Org access to the Elements App.  

Elements using Salesforce as Identity provider (SSO)

Once the user has been connected, they can use their Salesforce username and password to log in to the Elements App.

After providing their email on the Elements login screen, they will be taken to the Salesforce login screen - or straight to the app if they are already logged in with Salesforce.

Important: In order to set up Salesforce as Identity provider for Elements (SSO), continue to this article. This will walk through how to create an auto-login flow to allow automatic sign-in between Elements and Salesforce.
