The Clever Portal supports universal single sign-on (SSO) via Saved Password applications! When students log in to their Clever Portal, they will receive a seamless single-sign on experience for all of their applications, even those that don't yet roster with Clever or unique applications that are only used by your district.
What are Saved Password applications?
Saved Password applications are used with applications that don't currently integrate directly with Clever's single sign-on (SSO) but can still be accessed through the Portal. Clever securely stores users' credentials for these applications through the setup process outlined below.
What do I need to get started?
User accounts must be manually created within the application in advance, and passwords need to be manually set by the district administrator or by the users themselves.
After configuring the above, there are three steps to set up any application for universal single sign-on (SSO) from your Clever Portal:
1. Find and add an application
Visit the Request Applications page in your Clever dashboard to find the application you would like to use. Once identified, click 'Request App'.
Next, select if you would like to request that the application to supports rostering via Clever Secure Sync.
Finally, select 'Request Application'.
2. Configure user access
The next screen will provide with an option to share the added application with particular schools.
You can select the schools as listed and select 'Request with sharing' or choose 'Request and share later'.
Sharing rules can always be changed from the individual application page under 'Modify user selection':
Once you have added the application and set up sharing rules, you'll need to provide information on how Clever should log in your users.
First, select 'Begin matching' on the added application page:
Next, you will need to provide login information:
1. District Login URL or Account Code
If you log in to the application from a specific district URL account code, etc., you'll need to let us know so that we take your users to the proper page. To do this, enter the required information at the top of the form.
2. Match credentials
After we know where to log in, we also need to know what username and password your users use to log in. By default, we will request that the user enter their credentials manually the first time. After the first time, they will be automatically logged into their application with one click. If your users' credentials follow a consistent pattern or you'd rather populate them the first time, this article will help with setting up matching rules and/or csv uploads: How do I manage credentials for Saved Passwords applications?
