SSO Settings Per User

Andrew K.45 New member | Level 2

Admin console SSO settings have three options - disabled, optional, or required.

It appears that this can only be set globally, and not per-user.

The issue we're facing is that making it required necessitates paying for an SSO license (in our case, OneLogin) for every user.  Our organization is 200+ and the costs quickly add up.  On the other hand, making SSO optional means we have to manage an extra layer of security (MFA) specifically for Dropbox.

Is there a way to set SSO requirements individually for users?

Re: SSO Settings Per User

Hey Andrew (@Andrew K.45), while you can currently choose to set single sign-on to optional or required, kindly note that any registered setting will apply to the team rather than each member individually. If you wish to modify your settings for selected team members, then you could enable two-step verification instead. 
As it seems that you've tried to explore your options at this point, I’d like to thank you for taking the time to share your interest on this functionality on this thread; I’ve noted all your comments on my report internally, so as to add your voice to the feedback we’re collecting on the Community. 
Hopefully this is-even slightly- helpful to you however I’m always here if you have further questions or thoughts. Thanks!
