Google Apps SAML Integration with Screencast-O-Matic

Google Apps serving as the Identity Provider (IDP) can provide your users with single sign-on (SSO) access via Security Assertion Markup Language 2.0 Standard (SAML) to the Screencast-O-Matic Screen Recorder and Video Editor under your team plan.  Also, when Team Premier users first authenticate via SAML, we setup their dedicated hosting account as part of the Team Plan.

This article describes how to configure SAML SSO with Google Apps serving as the IDP. 

Prerequisites
