PartnerStack offers a number of security configurations to ensure your PartnerStack account remains compliant with your company access policies.

Currently, PartnerStack supports three authentication options for partnership organizations managing programs on Partnerstack: email and password, Google OAuth, and Single Sign-On via SAML 2.0.

Email and Password

The defacto authentication method on PartnerStack, unless another method is configured. Available for both partners and company teammates.

Google OAuth

Login to PartnerStack via Google's OAuth authentication flow. Once a google account is connected, OAuth is enforced for all subsequent logins. Available for both partners and company teammates.

SAML single sign-on (SSO)

SAML single sign-on (SSO) allows your partnership team to authenticate to PartnerStack through your company's existing identity provider. This means they can access multiple tools with the same set of credentials while using a more secure method of authentication than just their email and password.

SAML SSO is only available for company teammate authentication.

How it works

PartnerStack integrates with your company’s identity provider (IdP) to provide a simple, seamless authentication process for your partnership team to access PartnerStack. Within the SAML 2.0 framework, PartnerStack functions as the Service Provider (SP).

Configuring SAML 2.0

Your SAML SSO setup depends on the identity provider you use. The PartnerStack support team can help you with the setup instructions for supported identity providers (Okta, OneLogin, etc).
