Configure SSO into your Applications using Shopify Store Credentials

Users can sign in to your Shopify Store using their Shopify Store login credentials when using the Shopify Store as IDP Application. Once a user has logged in to one Store, they can access other applications, including the Shopify store, with a single click - there is no need to log in or sign up again. You can map any user profile attribute to your Application for a login experience that uses their current Shopify Store credentials if desired. Users can use their store credentials to log into any application that supports SAML, OAuth, JWT, or API authentication methods.
