Authentication integrations allow your learners to access Voxy on web and mobile without having to create a new username or password. This can make it easier and more secure for your learners to log into Voxy. Depending on your existing IT configurations, an authentication integration may help to ensure the security of your learners’ information and make it easier for them to start studying right away.
What authentication protocols can Voxy support?
Voxy provides several options for authentication protocols. Read on to see which one is right for you.
If you want to get started quickly, and you don’t need to integrate with existing systems, Voxy’s Default Authentication should meet your needs. This method uses OAuth2’s OpenID Connect (OIDC) protocols to ensure security and quality. Voxy’s password reset functionality only applies to this default authentication method.
2. SAML 2.0.
If your organization already manages user identity and credentials with a tool that supports SAML 2.0, this integration may be an easy way for you to handle user creation and single sign-on. We have successfully integrated with identity providers like Microsoft Azure Active Directory, Okta and Auth0.

4. LTI 1.1.
If your learners use an LMS like Canvas, it may be easiest for them to get started with LTI. Please note that this integration supports user authentication only. It does not currently support other LTI features like content sharing or reporting.
Voxy supports Just-in-Time (JIT) user creation via SAML 2.0, OIDC, and LTI 1.1. Please see the detailed documentation here. When you fill out the request form, we will ask you if you would like to use JIT user creation.
Deep Linking and Unauthenticated User Behaviors
Organizations can deep link to many parts of the Voxy web and mobile apps, meaning a link can lead them directly to certain pages within the platform. See this article for detailed specifications of how to make sure your deep links work for both authenticated and unauthenticated users with your authentication method.
