Adding Users with SSO enabled

Text from the Help


Before a new user has Single Sign On enabled in their profile, the admin sets them up as a new user, they receive their initial welcome e-mail with temporary password and they must sign on to Salesforce as a new user and set up their password. Then their profile may be changed to enable SSO.


Is there any way, in which the user could be added with the SSO enabled to begin with. Or does the system admin have to enable SSO for him after he logins the first time? Are there other options?


Users are created in our org by a feed from another system. So we would ideally like that system to enable SSO programmatically for us.



Any guidance will be extremely helpful






The online help isn't written clearly in this case. Once you have a SSO enabled profile, all users set up under that profile will automatically be SSO enabled. As long as the user you create is active, they will be able to log in without any additional modifications. When a user is associated to a SSO enabled profile, they will not receive any of the password reset emails / messages.
