Forumbee Login Options

In Forumbee in the SAML 2.0 integration page, select Login Options:


  • Enforce SSO: If you would like to require all users to log in through Auth0, check this option. However, to avoid getting locked out of your account, you should keep this option disabled until you have completed SSO configuration and have verified that it is working correctly. 
  • IP address range: If you would like users from specific IP addresses to be required to log in through Auth0, check this option. 
  • Show SSO option on Forumbee login form: This option is enabled by default. It provides a button on the Forumbee log in page to log in through SSO. You can change the button label here. 
  • Allow users to change their own display name: With this option, users can change their display name in Forumbee to something other than their name in Auth0.
