  6. Under the SSO tab, copy the Issuer URL.

  7. Under the Access tab, add any users you wish to have access to RSP.

  8. Update the Workbench configuration file with the following:

  9. Restart RSP by running the following:

    sudo systemctl restart rstudio-server

Any user who has been given access via OneLogin and has been provisioned on the Workbench server, should now be able to login.
