# SSO (Single Sign-On)

As the name implies, the Single Sign-On simplifies the experience across integrations with 3rd parties.

It requires a one-time setup on the exhibitors' portal server and placing a script that contains a pre shared key and event code. In this manner, the Single Sign-on won't require a double authentication when switching from an owned portal to Visit Connect.

The pre shared key and event code are found here: Visit > Event > Visit Connect > SSO

B. Simulate a 3rd party integration here (opens new window).

  • Introduce the pre-shared key and event code from Visit > Event > Visit Connect > SSO.
  • Type the Contact Reference which is found in Visit > Service Centre > Partners. Choose a partner and copy the Reference code.
