OwnBackup supports single sign-on using SAML 2.0 and a supporting third-party Identity Provider (IdP) that works in tandem with its internal user management system.

The users in OwnBackup also benefit by not having to remember and manage yet another password for this service and instead use a single service to sign-on with into OwnBackup.
OwnBackup indeed uses SAML 2.0 and supports IdP-Initiated flows only (Not SP-Initiated Flows), therefore the IDP must provide the SAML Assertion to be used in order to authenticate.
