Single Sign-On makes logging in to Stile easier and more efficient for teachers and students.
This article is for Stile school admins and IT staff at schools who wish to set up a Single Sign-On (or SSO) integration between the school server and Stile.
Single Sign-On (or SSO) is an integration with your school's email credentials. It means that your students and teachers will sign in to Stile using the same email address and password that they use for their email inboxes and other platforms used by the school. It also means that their names and passwords are managed by the school instead of Stile, giving you more control over their online presence and data. This integration comes at no additional cost to your Stile subscription.
Note: If you are a Victorian DET teacher or a NSW DoE teacher or student then you already have SSO set up! Learn more about the NSW integration here. Education Queensland (EQ) teachers and students can use the Sign in with Microsoft button on the Stile login page.
Stile supports SSO in the form of any SAML Identity Provider, such as Microsoft Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS), Google's G Suite, etc; or Microsoft Office 365 (using OAuth 2). The integration will allow the school IT staff to manage account passwords and student names, which will greatly reduce login issues that tend to come up at the start of the year, or after a long break, or just before a big exam. The integration will not delete students' existing Stile accounts or work, nor will it automatically transfer marks from Stile to your Learning/Student Management System. Check out our Canvas integration for the latter!
Contact Stile Support to get started and include the following information:
- What software you're using as your Identity Provider (IdP);
- Any email domains your school uses, e.g. “...@yourschool.edu.au”, “...@students.yourschool.edu.au”);
- Your Federation Metadata URL or XML file.
We will send you a setup guide tailored to your IdP and instructions on how to test the integration once it is registered in Stile.
