How to sign in to the Yammer Desktop Application or a Yammer mobile app when SSO is enabled

INTRODUCTION

This article describes how to sign in to the Yammer Desktop Application or a Yammer mobile app when single sign-on (SSO) is enabled on your Yammer network.

SSO lets you access Yammer in just one click from an SSO portal where all enterprise applications are already conveniently located. You no longer have to remember any URLs, user names, or passwords. This behavior saves time and prevents phishing.

To access SSO networks from Yammer mobile apps, you first have to sign in to the Yammer website to retrieve a temporary password for the application.

PROCEDURE

Note The Yammer Desktop Application will be decommissioned on or around April 15, 2014 and the ability to access Yammer by using the existing application will be removed. A new Windows Desktop Notifier App was released that provides a more streamlined experience for the desktop. To download the Desktop Notifier App, go to the following website:
To sign in to your Yammer mobile app or the Yammer Desktop Application on a network that has SSO enabled, follow these steps to obtain a temporary password:
  1. In a web browser, sign in to http://yammer.com/YourDomain.com.

    Note The YourDomain.com placeholder represents your company's domain name.
  2. Browse to https://www.yammer.com/apps.
  3. Click the mobile device that you're using or the Yammer Desktop Application.
  4. Review the instructions under Single Sign On Instructions.
  5. Use the displayed password together with your email address to sign in to the Yammer mobile app or the Yammer Desktop Application.
Note For Windows Phone users, go to Windows Phone Application, and then review the instructions under Single Sign-On Instructions instead of using steps 2-4.

MORE INFORMATION

This password is valid until you sign out. Therefore, it's a good idea to select the Remember me option when you are using the desktop application.

If you sign out from either a Yammer mobile app or the Yammer Desktop Application, you have to follow the steps in the "Procedure" section again to obtain a new password.
