Lightspeed Retail – Single Sign On integration

Tips for connecting SSO

Manage and authenticate users more securely by connecting SSO.

Choose a supported SSO

Choose an IDP that supports OAuth/OIDC. This is the only authentication protocol Lightspeed Retail supports. Your IDP must be allowed to request these scopes: openid, profile and email.

Choose a quiet time

Once SSO is enabled, all users (except the Primary Admin) will be required to use SSO to authenticate. This should be done at a time that is not disruptive to your users.

The Lightspeed POS set-up, in regards to ease of use for our staff, has been exceptional. It’s just so simple to use because everything has a sequence; everything has a flow.

It’s so quick, it’s so easy. I know that my staff just honestly say you could teach a guinea pig how to use it. So, yeah, we find it excellent.
