FAQs

If another team in my company already uses SSO with Airtable, how does this impact my Business or Enterprise Scale account?

In Airtable, our system expects Enterprise Scale accounts using shared domains—domains federated to multiple Enterprise accounts—to use the same SAML metadata for SSO. What this means is that if your company has existing Enterprise Scale accounts with SSO configured, you will need to coordinate with the admins (or IT department) of the other accounts to obtain the current sign-in URLs, x.509 certificates, and ensure that your users have the necessary access to the Airtable tenant present in your company’s identity provider.

You can configure separate tenants or identity providers for domains unique to Enterprise Scale accounts, as each domain can be configured with its own SAML metadata.
