By activating the SAML app in Docebo, users can log into their learning platforms using credentials from active sessions of other web platforms. Docebo offers two types of configuration procedures for the SAML integration, called Smart Configuration and Standard Configuration. This article will go through the differences between them so that you can understand which one suits you the best. 

Smart Configuration vs Standard Configuration

When configuring the integration between Docebo and SAML, you can either select the Smart Configuration or the Standard Configuration procedure. 

If you have configured the integration with SAML before February 25, 2020, you have gone through the Standard Configuration procedure, while the Smart Configuration procedure is the default option for those integrating after February 25, 2020. 

Independently from the configuration type currently selected in your platform, and on whether you have already configured the integration, you can re-configure it at any time, but remember that all of your settings will be lost, and you will have to start the configuration from scratch

Here is a comparison between the two integration types:
