Manage access and permissions for Dynatrace SaaS users via SAML federation

SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is an open standard that allows identity providers to pass authorization credentials to service providers. It helps companies manage permissions and employee access to multiple services with a single set of credentials.

Use your company’s identity provider for authentication

Dynatrace SaaS now allows you to authenticate your Dynatrace users based on your company’s identity provider. A dedicated Dynatrace password is no longer required. Also, if your company’s identity provider uses multi-factor authentication, you now have a more secure means of authenticating your Dynatrace users.
