With Xello SSO, students can log into their ClassLink SSO account and then access Xello without a separate login.

FYIFYI: To learn more about how SSO works in Xello, see the articles How Student SSO Works and How Educator SSO Works.

Your Onboarding Manager will provide you with two pieces of information to be used in a later step: a consumer key and a shared secret. The consumer key is our unique identifier for your ClassLink implementation, while the shared secret is used to ensure that all communication sent from ClassLink to Xello are secure. Both pieces of information are unique to your implementation and are known only by Xello and your ClassLink administrator.
