Configuring OneLogin SSO and SCIM

This guide tells you to how to enable Single Sign-On (SAML) and automatic user provisioning (SCIM) between Hoxhunt and OneLogin.

  • Single Sign-On allows your employees to login to e.g. Hoxhunt Dashboard at and Admin portal at
  • Automatic user provisioning creates users to Hoxhunt and keeps their user data up to date. Provisioning service also deactivates users who are unassigned from the OneLogin application or are deactivated in OneLogin.

NOTE: Setting up SSO is optional. Single Sign-On is not required to report emails with Hoxhunt button. If you don't wish to configure SSO, employees can log in to Hoxhunt App via Magic Links.

NOTE: Setting up SCIM is optional. If you don't wish to configure SCIM, you can manage your Hoxhunt users via Hoxhunt Admin Portal


Supported Features

The OneLogin/Hoxhunt SAML integration currently supports the following features:

  • IdP-initiated SSO
  • SP-initiated SSO

The OneLogin/Hoxhunt SCIM integration currently supports the following features:

  • Create users

  • Update user attributes

  • Deactivate users

Before you start

Before you start configuring OneLogin, make sure you meet the following technical requirements:

  • you have an OneLogin account with admin privileges

  • you have Admin access to Hoxhunt in order to gather necessary setup information (if you don't have access, please reach out to your Onboarding Manager or Hoxhunt Support)

In addition, configuration is easier if you:

  • make sure you know which users you will give access to the application.
  • check which employees already have an account in Hoxhunt. You can utilise Data Inspector or ask Hoxhunt Support to provide a full user list. You may also identify users who have already left your company or shouldn't be part of Hoxhunt anymore.

After you are finished

After you have completed OneLogin configuration for SSO and/or SCIM, please check the following:

  • make sure the provisioned user data meets your expectations, and all user attributes are properly mapped between OneLogin and Hoxhunt. Adjust if necessary.
  • double-check you don't have users in Hoxhunt who are outside of OneLogin provisioning. Correct as necessary.
  • double-check you haven't provisioned unwanted users (e.g. technical accounts) to Hoxhunt. Adjust your assignments as necessary.
