I've used the Ant Migration Tool previously, but only in an Org that allowed a username/password login. Now I'm trying to get it to work for deployment to an Org that uses single sign on, but I can't find anything about how to configure the file for this.

Does anyone know how to configure Single Sign On credentials / deployment?

The org doesn't have a regular account as a backup? – Mike Chale Jan 23 '13 at 18:01
I thought SSO was all or nothing. It makes sense you can designate accounts that are outside of it. Thanks, I need to read more. – Ray Jan 24 '13 at 15:06

There should be an account that accesses the org outside of their Single Sign On system. For instance, System Administrators really shouldn't be a part of a SSO system because if that system fails, no users can access Salesforce. Ideally, any deployments should also be done with an account like that.

Great thanks. Looks like I need to read more about how SSO works. I thought it was all or nothing... – Ray Jan 24 '13 at 15:04
