Help Regarding Partner Portal

Hello all,



Can anyone please help me out regarding the following:


I want to sign on to a website and from there login to partner portal in to manage contact. Is there anyway to do this?


Thanks in advance. 


Sure, you can make it do that with delegated authentication or single sign-on.  Check out the docs on those in Help & Training.



Is there a way to do a Partner Portal with delegated authentication?  This would be our preferred method as we already have a delegated web service in place.


From this site it seems like you can only use Federated authentication...


Single Sign-On for Portals Best Practices

  • Only SAML version 2.0 can be used with portals.
  • Only Customer Portals and partner portals are supported.
  • Service provider initiated login is not supported.
  • Both theportal_idandorganization_idattributes are required for single sign-on for portals. If only one is specified, the user receives an error.
  • If both theportal_idandorganization_idattributes are populated in the SAML assertion, the user is directed to that portal login. If neither is populated, the user is directed to the regular SAML Salesforce login.
  • More than one portal can be used with a single organization.
