Setting up SSO - OneLogin

We're transitioning to a new User Interface, and are in the process of updating Help Hub content to match the new interface.

SSO (Single Sign On) authentication lets you access your company’s applications and websites with a single set of login credentials. Centage has now enabled you to include Planning Maestro in your SSO solution.

You can add Planning Maestro to your company’s SSO solution if you use any SAML 2.0 compliant identity providers, including:

  • Okta
  • OneLogin
  • RSASecurID
  • Idaptive
  • Ping
  • Azure AD
  • CA Technologies
  • ... (and many more. Ask Centage Support.)

Your company has a designated SSO Admin user who can set up SSO for your company.

This document shows you, an SSO Admin, how to set up SSO for your company using OneLogin.

Setting up SSO with OneLogin

Step 4: On the Parameters tab, click the Add icon ( Add_.png ).

Step 9: On the SSO tab, under SAML Signature Algorithm, click on the dropdown menu and select SHA-256.


Step 10: Click Save.


Saving Your Issuer URL

When you set up SSO in Planning Maestro, you will need two pieces of information from OneLogin:

  1. Issuer URL (Planning Maestro calls this the “Metadata URL”)
  2. Recipient URL

On the SSO tab, copy and save the Issuer URL somewhere secure (you will need to use this later in Planning Maestro).

Info.png Please Note: When you set up SSO in Planning Maestro, you will need a Metadata URL. “Issuer URL” is OneLogin’s name for Metadata URL.


  • A confirmation message appears.
  • The SSO portal is created.
  • Now, select the Configuration tab to view and save your Recipient URL.


Save the URL in the Recipient field with the same place you saved your Issuer URL. You will need both your Issuer URL and Recipient URL to set up SSO in Planning Maestro.


Now, use the following section to set up users who need to access Planning Maestro.

Assigning Users

Step 1: To enable specific users to access Planning Maestro through OneLogin’s SSO portal, in the top left, select Users.


Step 2: Select users from the available list.

Warning.png Please Note: If you want a user to access Planning Maestro who does not have a OneLogin account, you need to create the user’s profile in OneLogin before setting up their access to Planning Maestro.


Step 3: The user’s profile opens.

  1. Make sure the Username listed on this profile matches the user’s username in Planning Maestro.
  2. Make sure the planningMaestroUserName matches the user’s username in Planning Maestro.
  3. Then, select the Applications tab on the left.


Step 4: The Applications tab opens. Click the Add icon ( Add_.png ).


Step 5: An Assign new login to [user] popup opens. Click the dropdown menu and select the Planning Maestro app.


Step 6: Click Continue.


Step 7: Confirm that this user’s planningMaestroUserName is an exact character match with their Planning Maestro username and click Save.


Example.png Example: In the screenshot, Emma Employee’s planningMaestroUserName is eemployee in both OneLogin and Planning Maestro.


  • A confirmation message appears.
  • The Planning Maestro app appears under Applications in the user’s profile.

Step 8: Click Save User.


A confirmation message appears.


On the Applications/SAML Test Connector (IdP w/ attr w/ sign response) page, on the Users tab, this user appears as one of the users who can access Planning Maestro through their OneLogin portal.


To assign more users to access Planning Maestro through OneLogin, repeat steps 1-5.
