The following section provides resources that can help in configuring multi-factor authentication using SAML authentication for an Appian installation. SAML provides a secure method for users to be authenticated by an external identity provider in order to enable single sign-on capabilities. For enhanced security, customers can use multi-factor authentication mechanisms provided by SAML 2.0 supported identity providers.

The specific steps to perform this configuration varies with each identity provider and the multi-factor authentication methods they support. The following are examples of SAML identity providers that support MFA:
