    • Log in to SpringCM as an administrator.
    • Select on the Go To tab and select Address Book.
    • Find and select on your own account.
    • In the User section, select Yes under Allow Password Login.
    • Select Save.
  • To create an SP-Initiated SSO page for your organization, you will need to retrieve your SpringCM account ID number. You can easily find your account ID number while configuring SSO. From the SAML SSO configuration page, select on the Help menu and select Show Help. You should see your account ID number at the bottom of the help text.
