Doximity SSO FAQ

Doximity now supports Single Sign-on (SSO) to make it easier for clinicians to log into their account.  At this time, SSO is only available for institutions on Enterprise plans.

 

Doximity SSO is compatible with SAML identity provider (IdP). Supported IdPs include Microsoft Azure and ADFS, DUO, and Okta.

 

How does it work?

  • Users will click on the Key icon on the sign in page to initiate the SSO and enter their institutional email associated with their Doximity account. If a user does not have a Doximity account, they will be prompted to follow the registration and verification process as part of SSO login flow. This streamlines the login process so that users can utilize their institutional credentials to access Doximity without having to remember a separate login.

Will users need to create a separate Doximity account with their institutional email address?

  • No, users can add their institutional email to their existing Doximity account following these instructions. After doing so, they’ll be able to utilize the SSO login flow described above. Their institutional email does not need to be set as primary in order for SSO to function. We encourage users to keep their personal email addresses associated with their account for verification/recovery purposes.

Will SSO work in web and mobile?

  • Yes! The SSO-login flow is identical for both platforms. 

What is best practice for set-up and usage of SSO at my organization?

  • Doximity’s technical team can provide copy for communication sent to end users. Afterwards, encourage individual users to add their institutional email to their account so they can take advantage of your organization’s Enterprise offerings.

Will my users notice a change once SSO is live?

  • No. SSO is turned on in the background. A user may choose to login via the regular login screen or select the Key icon for SSO.

Technical FAQs

Do you support my organization's IdP?

  • SSO can be configured with any organization that uses SAML identity provider (IdP). Supported IdPs include Microsoft Azure and ADFS, DUO, and Okta. 

Does Doximity support provisioning? 

  • SSO focuses on authentication. Provisioning, through the SCIM protocol, focuses on automating access to Doximity applications. For example, users offboarded from your organization can be removed from your Enterprise license. 

What limitations are there to provisioning?

  • Not all IDPs support SCIM provisioning. For example, MS Azure supports provisioning, but DUO does not.
