Configure SP-Initiated SSO for Procore in OneLogin


If your organization is using the Portfolio Financials and Capital Planning products in Procore, you will need to reach out to your Procore point of contact or the Support team to set up your OneLogin SSO.


To configure Procore's SP-initiated SSO for OneLogin. 


To assist you with understanding the terms discussed below, here are some definitions:

  • Identity Provider (IdP). This is the service that verifies the identity of your end users (e.g., Okta, OneLogin, or Microsoft Azure AD).
  • Issuer URL (Entity ID). A unique string that identifies the provider issuing a SAML request. 
  • SAML. Short for Security Assertion Markup Language.
  • Service Provider (SP). Procore
  • Target URL. The IdP URL that will receive SAML requests from Procore.
  • X.509 Certificate. This is an encrypted digital certificate that contains the required values that allow the SSO service to verify the identities of your users.

If your company wants to configure Single Sign-On with OneLogin, you can leverage one of Procore's supported SSO solutions:

  • Identity Provider Initiated (IdP-initiated) SSO. With this option, your end users must log into your Identity Provider's SSO page (e.g., OneLogin) and then click an icon to log into and open the Procore web application. To configure this solution, see Configure IdP-Initiated SSO for OneLogin.
  • Service Provider Initiated (SP-initiated) SSO. Referred to as Procore-initiated SSO, this option gives your end users the ability to sign into the Procore Login page and then sends an authorization request to the IdP. Once the IdP authenticates the user's identify, the user is logged into Procore. To configure this solution, see the Steps below. 

Things to Consider

  • Required Permissions:
    • Administrator permission to OneLogin.
    • 'Admin' level permissions to Procore's Company level Admin tool.
  • Prerequisites:
  • Supported Authentication Protocol:
    • Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML 2.0) 
  • Additional Information:
    • Procore-initiated SSO supports both single domain and multiple domain sign in. After completing the steps below, you must provide your SSO domain(s) to your company's Procore point of contact. This information will added to Procore as a final configuration step before you test your SSO configuration. 
 Optional - Unique Entity ID

When configuring SSO for a single Procore instance, you should NOT check this box.

If your company licenses more than one Procore instance, and you want to configure unique Procore enterprise applications within your IdP tenant for each instance, you can by enabling Unique Entity ID. If enabled, you are still limited to one (1) enterprise application per Procore company instance.

Important: SSO for Procore targets users by email domain. An email domain can only be targeted once in all of Procore, so if you're considering setting up SSO with Unique Entity IDs across multiple Procore instances, remember that you can only target an email domain once, in a single instance.

To generate a Unique Entity ID for an enterprise application, check the Enable Unique Entity ID box in the Procore Admin tool's SSO configuration page for the Procore instance you want to specify on an enterprise application. Checking this box will generate a unique Entity ID URL in the field below, which you will then copy and paste into the appropriate Entity ID field in your IdP's configuration page.

Notes: You must save your configuration with the box checked to generate the Unique Entity ID. Enabling this feature does not impact user membership or access to a given instance. Access to a company in Procore is determined by a user's presence in the Directory tool, and their configured permissions within Procore. Auto-provisioning with SSO is not supported at this time.

    This opens a page showing all the certificate details. 
  3. In the top-right corner of the X.509 Certificate box, click Copy to Clipboard.
    This copies the X.509 certificate to your web browser's clipboard.
    Important! When using the OneLogin website, you might want to paste the items you copy into a Notepad document, to ensure that the Copy to Clipboard command worked as expected. When the copy command is successful, the browser will display a 'Copied' tooltip like the one illustrated below. If the copy command does NOT work in your browser version, simply place your mouse cursor in the text field the copy all the text (e.g., press CTRL+C in Windows or CMD+C on a Mac).

      The OneLogin tool automatically formats the certificate in two ways -- with the header or with the string.  
    4. Scroll to X.509 Cert in String Format box at the bottom of the page. Then choose one of the options to copy the certificate information:
