Setting a Non-SSO Password


If you sign in to Egnyte via an SSO provider (e.g., Okta, Azure AD, Google, etc.) and you need to log into a tool that does not support SSO login, you can set up a separate non-SSO password to log in.

Non-SSO passwords are valid for the following protocols and functions: 

Non-SSO passwords cannot be used to log into the Egnyte Web UI, desktop, mobile, or other Egnyte applications.


Delegated Authentification

Whenever a "delegated auth" is configured (currently supported for Okta and Onelogin), by providing an API key token in Egnyte SSO setup, users can log in to the given service (FTP/SFTP, WebDav, etc) using their IdP (Okta/Onelogin) password and Egnyte username. Note that when delegated authentification is enabled, the option to set non-SSO passwords is not available.


Setting a Non-SSO Password

To set or update your non-SSO password, follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to the Egnyte Web UI
  2. Click your profile picture or initials in the top-right of the screen and then click your name
  3. Click My Preferences
  4. Under the Security section, click the Set non-SSO password link
