SAML authentication

The SAML authentication integration allows your Grafana users to log in by using an external SAML Identity Provider (IdP). To enable this, Grafana becomes a Service Provider (SP) in the authentication flow, interacting with the IdP to exchange user information.

SAML authentication integration is only available in Grafana Enterprise v6.3 or later. For more information, refer to SAML authentication in Grafana Enterprise.
