There are several possible ways for users to access a Tribal Habits portal.

In this article, we summarise the different ways users can log in to a Tribal Habits portal. Keep in mind that not all of these ways may be enabled or possible for your organisation's Tribal Habits portal. This article is a summary of possible login methods.

Standard user / Normal login page

All Tribal Habits portals have a standard login page, requiring users to enter their user name or email and their password.

  • User names and emails must both be unique to users in your portal

  • Passwords must meet a minimum complexity requirement

There is a 'Forgot Password' option on your portal's standard login page.

For first time / new users logging in via your normal login page, you can send them an invitation email to set a new password and then log in to your Tribal Habits portal with that new password.

Single-Sign-On (SSO)

Tribal Habits supports SAML 2.0 Single-Sign-On (SSO) integrations such as Azure AD, Okta or One Login. This allows users to access a Tribal Habits portal via your organisation's own SSO login process.

SSO integration is included in Active 50 and higher plans, so please check your organisation's plan to see if SSO integration is included first (if unsure, please contact Support). If SSO integration is included in your plan, then your organisation can set up SSO directly. Learn more about setting up an SSO integration at this article.

External user login (in SSO Portal)

When SSO is enabled in your organisation's Tribal Habits portal, there is also an option to allow 'external' users to access your portal via the normal login page. This might be used for contractors or volunteers not included in your SSO login process.

Parent admins logging into a child portal

Tribal Habits supports multi-tenancy for certain plan types. This means your organisation can have multiple Tribal Habits portals, each with their own URL and branding. In this situation, one portal is designated the 'Parent' portal. All other portals are 'Child' portals.

Admins from the parent portal can log in to any child portal using their parent portal credentials (to avoid having to create duplicate users).

LMS Link user (via an external LMS)

Tribal Habits supports a unique feature called LMS Link. This feature allows you to share your Tribal Habits topics with a third party / external LMS via an LMS Link (a SCORM 1.2 compatible file). Please note that this feature is not included in any plan by default and must be added to your plan as an additional feature.

This feature allows users from a third party / external LMS to access topics in your Tribal Habits portal. The users do not have to log in to your Tribal Habits portal and can only access the one topic via each LMS Link.

However, the user is essentially granted access rights to that one topic and so is, in a way, 'logging in' to your portal.

OAuth2 login ('Login via....' button)

OAuth 2.0 is a security standard where you give one application permission to access data in another application. In practical terms at Tribal Habits, OAuth2 is typically utilised when you have an existing platform of your own which your users already log into (and so have a password in your platform), and you would like to have your users log into Tribal Habits using the same password. So OAuth2 avoids asking your users to create another set of credentials and log into a separate platform.

Note that OAuth2 is not the same as SAML 2.0 Single-Sign-On. These are different standards (which are often confused ). OAuth2 is also not included in any Tribal Habits plan and is an additional cost for inclusion.

Once OAuth2 is activated, a new button appears on the normal login page for your Tribal Habits portal and will say something like 'Login via [other platform name'].
