How can I provision users from our own single sign-on service to OPSWAT Central Management?

OPSWAT Central Management offers integration with a 3rd-party Single Sign-on Service (SSO). This enables an account to provision new users to manage your account. When a user logs into the OPSWAT Central Management console through your own SSO service, OPSWAT Central Management will provision that user as a read-only user on your account. You can update the user's role later.
