Configure how your users access Blackboard Learn.

Authentication in Blackboard Learn allows you to configure the system so users can validate and initiate a session by providing username and password credentials. You can also integrate Blackboard Learn with one or more external authentication providers, to enable single sign-on and ensure more secure access.

Recover from a lockout or bad configuration

A change to the authentication framework configuration may inadvertently cause you to be locked out of the user interface. If your system is in accessible due to a lockout or bad authentication provider configuration, please contact Support to resolve the issue.
