  3. Confirm Auth0 access: Back at Auth0, confirm that the email addresses for all users are identical in both strongDM and your SSO provider. Confirm that all users to whom you intend to grant database access have access to the strongDM application by default.

At this point, you should be ready to enable SSO.
