Get Started with Admin Portal

SAML Jackson comes with an Admin Portal that allows you to manage Enterprise SSO and Directory Sync products via an easy to use web interface. Our future products (where relevant) will also be available in the Admin Portal.

To enable the Admin Portal, make sure you deploy the Jackson as a service.
