RStudio is now Posit!

Our professional products have been renamed to Posit Connect, Posit Workbench, Posit Package Manager, Posit Cloud, and Posit Academy so it’s easier for folks to understand that we support more than just R. Please review our Blog post/FAQ to answer commonly asked questions about the rebrand.

Posit Connect, formerly RStudio Connect, can integrate with a number of 3rd party products and authentication providers for user authentication.


The following external integration overview is a duplicate of the Authentication Overview section provided in the Connect Admin Guide. Please navigate to the Authentication section of the guide for the full documentation.

Integration with external authentication providers#

External authentication is available through the following integrations:

Single Sign-On (SSO) options
On-premise options
Other Options


Connect only supports one active authentication provider at a time. Migration from one to another is a non-trivial effort and may require both user and content conversion. It is sometimes easier (depending on what the system has been used for) to create a new Connect installation than it might be to migrate one. If migration, however, is the desired path, you can find further guidance at Changing Authentication Provider (Migration).
