For SSO to appear on the login screen, you must have account recovery enabled and configured for at least one admin account. After account recovery is configured, log out of ServiceNow and open an incognito browser window. Go to your ServiceNow URL. Select the SSO name you just configured, which will prompt you to sign in with your identity provider. When the integration is successful, you can go back to the OIDC configuration screen to turn on Default and/or Auto Redirect IDP.
