SAML v2 & PagerDuty

PagerDuty + FusionAuth Integration Benefits

  • Simplify the user login experience because each user only has to remember one set of credentials.
  • Maintain centralized control of who has access to your Pager Duty account.
  • Authorized users gain transparent access between all applications using FusionAuth as an identity provider.
  • Increase security and flexibility of login credentials, including using passkeys and multi-factor authentication

How it Works

  • When a user reaches the PagerDuty login screen, they can sign in using their credentials from FusionAuth.
  • User management and access is managed by FusionAuth.


In PagerDuty: you must have a Business or Digital Operations plan and be the Account Owner in order to enable Single Sign-On. For more information about this feature, please visit their SSO support page. If you do not have this role, please reach out to the Account Owner within your organization to configure the integration.

In FusionAuth: you need to be able to configure a SAML connection on an application. This can be done manually with a user account assigned either the admin or application_manager role. It can also be done with an API key that has the application permission.


If you need help with this integration, you can request assistance in one of two ways.

You can review our Technical Support documentation for more details.
