How does SSO work?
Once the connection between your central identity provider (e.g., Active Directory) and our SSO solution is set up, your team members will be able to use it. To do so, they will need to follow the steps below:
- Click the Log in with SSO or Continue with SSO button displayed in the DeepL Login window
- Enter the company SSO domain
- Click Log in
Next, the user will be redirected to their identity provider, where they should enter their credentials. Once the login is successful, the user will be redirected to DeepL.com and will be automatically logged in.
For each new user, there will be a new DeepL account created. Once you reach the limit of team members in your team subscription, no other new team members will be able to use your DeepL Pro subscription.
This means that any user who is successfully logged in to your identity provider can create a DeepL account as long as you don't reach the maximum limit of team members in your team.
If the maximum limit of team members in your team is reached and there is a new user attempting to join your team, the system looks for all SSO team members who have not logged in to DeepL Pro for 30 days. If the system finds such users, their DeepL accounts get disabled so that the new user can join your team.
If there is no new user attempting to join your team, the disabling mechanism for inactive team members (those who have not logged in to DeepL Pro for 30 days) isn't triggered.
