Provision for backdoor login

In a SAML-enabled TeamForge environment, TeamForge administrators are provided with a backdoor login URL which can be used to log on to TeamForge without any intermediaries such as an IdP whenever things go wrong (due to some changes in SAML IdP endpoints) and if TeamForge is not accessible.

You can also use this backdoor login to fix any issues with SAML configuration. The backdoor login URL can be found in the TeamForge SAML configuration UI. TeamForge Administrators are advised to bookmark or keep this URL handy.
Note: Other users can use the ‘Forgot Password’ link at the login page to set the local TeamForge password that should authenticate them to carry out any other user activities based on their RBAC permissions.
