Note: Metadata should not contain <RoleDescriptor> tags


Step 4

You should be able to log in to Colt Online with Single Sign On.

Note: Your Colt Online user should have the same email address as your company credentials. If you haven’t signed up for Colt Online yet then click here to register.


Important: Single Sign On (with your company credentials) will be the only option to access Colt Online once it is enabled. This will apply to all users in your organisation.
