3340133 - [ONB] External user logged out intermittently when using SSO with IAS


  • IAS is enabled on the SF tenant and onboardee users are presenting issues when logging into SF or when browsing the SF tenant.  
  • When an external user logs into bizx using SSO with IAS, when navigating between pages they are running into a 'invalid login' or 'invalid manager screen'


SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite - Onboarding module

Reproducing the Issue

  • Log into the instance as an external user 
  • Navigate between pages and you may
  • Suddenly you will be logged out with the 'invalid manager' or 'invalid login screen'


User is using SP initiated login by logging via a PWD URL in the format [[HOME_PAGE]]&pm_product_name=ONB while we expect to have them to login via IAS causing these inconsistencies. 


External users should use a url which fits the following <SF host>/login?company=<company_id> aka default [[HOME_PAGE] login. This would later get redirected automatically and properly to the IAS tenant.  In other words, Once IAS is enabled for onboarding users it is recommended to have all the login / authentication process to go thu IAS.
