Instant Login Links allow districts to embed application login URLs directly into their district's SSO portal, website or Learning Management System (LMS). This allows district users to access Clever applications via your district portal using their Clever credentials. When district users click on an app's Instant Login Link, they are logged directly into the app via single sign-on (SSO) rather than into their Clever Portal.
How do Instant Login links work?
- When a user clicks on an app's Instant Login link from your district portal, they are redirected to your single sign-on (SSO) Identity Provider (e.g. Google, Active Directory, etc.) to sign in. For additional information about IDPs, visit: Single Sign-On (SSO): Identity Provider (IDP) Options
- Once the user is successfully authenticated, they will be logged in and taken to the application. They will not see their Clever Portal.
- Please note: If a user has already authenticated with your Identity Provider (IDP) and is currently logged in, they will skip the IDP login screen and be taken directly into the app.
Finding an app's Instant Login Link
District admins can locate an app's Instant Login Link from the Clever district dashboard > Home page by clicking on the name of the application to open the app overview page. Then, navigate to the app 'Settings' tab to locate the link under 'Application Information'. Copy the Instant Login Link to embed into your district portal, website, or LMS.
If you would like to use the app icon in your district portal, you can download the 'Application Icon' image from this page as well.
Please note that Instant Login links are not available for SSO (Saved Passwords) applications and that each individual learning application determines which of the following user types they support:

If a user type is not listed under 'SSO Supported User Types' in the app 'Settings' tab, users of that type will not be able to access the application from your district portal via the Instant Login Link.
