Bypass Document360 common login page
The article explains how to enable the standard login page bypass for SSO readers in Document360. This allows readers to skip the standard login page and go directly to the SSO login page when they enter the URL into their browser. To enable this, go to Settings > Users > Security > SAML/OpenID and turn on the toggle of "Enable to bypass Document360 common login page" option. This will allow readers direct access to your knowledge base portal where they can create categories, articles, templates, manage files and set up branding, domain and security settings.
This bypass option will skip the Document360 standard login page and directly access the SSO login page. This option is available for private projects in which all project members are SSO readers.
If you have both regular and SSO users in your project, Refrain from bypassing the standard Document360 Login page.
When the bypass option is enabled, the team account/readers enter the URL into the browser and hit enter. They would land directly on the SSO login page.

The standard login page bypass can be enabled in the SSO settings page for both standards (SAML or OpenID).
The bypass setting would only be visible on the SSO settings page after an SSO (OpenID or SAML) has been configured with your project.
- Go to your desired project in the Knowledge base portal
- Click Settings → Users & Security → SAML/OpenID
- Either select the already configured standard (SAML or OpenID) or you can configure a new SSO
- When you scroll down, you can find the Advanced settings section
- Turn on the toggle of the Enable to bypass Document360 common login page option. The toggle is turned off by default
- Click Save
After you perform the above steps, each time the reader enters your knowledge base URL in the browser, they will be taken directly to the SSO login page.
