Cisco+ Secure Connect - Sign on Once


Secure Connect is delivered via capabilities based on both Meraki and Umbrella dashboards. The goal of the Sign in Once Between dashboards is to create one unified experience between Secure Connect ( Meraki ) and Umbrella dashboard.

This will enable logged-in Secure Connect users to automatically be logged into the Umbrella dashboard when clicking on any Umbrella link, regardless of whether they've manually logged into Umbrella.


  1. Users will already have an existing session with the Secure Connect Meraki Dashboard
  2. This integration only works with users that have the Secure connect Meraki org synced with an "enabled" Umbrella org (API Integration is successful)
  3. The link to cross launch is not saved via bookmark but rather direct linkage via the dashboard.
  4. The email address must match on both sides for the user who is trying to use the sign on once feature. 

Without Sign-On Once

Clicking on a link in the Secure Connect dashboard leads the user to an Umbrella login page if the user does not have an Umbrella session active or the emails are not synced up between dashboards.
