Before you configure Single Sign-On and provisioning for Notion you need to contact Notion support or your rep to enable:
- Add and verify your domain so that SAML SSO can be enabled
- Generate SCIM token for your account so that you can use it for provisioning
Also you will need to collect and prepare idemeum SAML metadata URL. Instructions for how to obtain your idemeum SAML metadata parameters are below.
Single Sign-On (SAML)
Configure SSO in Notion
- Log in to your Notion account and navigate to Settings and Members in the left menu
- Choose Security and Identity and scroll to SAML Single Sign-On section
- Make a copy of Single Sign-On URL as you will use it to configure SSO in idemeum
- Choose IDP metadata URL and paste the URL that you obtained in the prerequisites section
- Enable SAML and optionally enforce SAML for every login. We recommend you try SAML first before enforcement so that you do not lock yourself out.
- Scroll down to SCIM configuration, click View token and take note of the SCIM token for your Notion tenant. You will need this token to configure provisioning in idemeum.
