How to Configure SAML 2.0 for TeamViewer

Read this before you enable SAML

Enabling SAML will affect all users who use this application, which means that users will not be able to sign-in through their regular log-in page. They will only be able to access the app through the Okta service.

Backup URL

TeamViewer does not provide backup log-in URL where users can sign-in using their normal username and password. It is recommended to add an admin user with a different email domain when enabling SAML in TeamViewer.
