Does enabling SSO impact existing user accounts?
In short, no. For existing users, the only thing that is changing is where they login. The underlying account at Lotame is not changed.
There is an edge case where the email that the user logins into Lotame is different than the one they use in your Identity provider. In that case, this would be seen as a new user to Lotame when they sign in through SSO. To handle these cases, please have a Lotame Admin go to Manage Users and use the Copy feature of the user and add their other email.
Please remember to disable the old account once the user begins using the new SSO account.

What happens if my SSO is offline
If your SSO platform is having issues, there is a work around to still allow access to the Lotame platform for your users. On the SSO Account Settings screen disabled Require for Non-Admins. Then your users can login with their email at https://platform.lotame.com.
Users who were created after SSO was enabled have slightly more work to get them able to use the Platform. Please reach out to your Lotame Client success manager for assistance.
Note: It is likely the user's password has expired or they do not remember. In that case going through the Forgot Password? flow will get them access.
