If Self Service SAML is not configured, sign in with your Anaplan email address and password.

You need to install the add-on before you select your authentication type.

      If you choose single sign-on, enter your SSO friendly name in the SSO friendly name field. Your tenant administrator can provide this for you. It is unique to your company and follows this general format: https://sdp.anaplan.com/frontdoor/saml/customersaml
