Login events are not automatically audited when using SSO.  You could add something similar to this under the SSO Authentication Rule (text in black represents additions) to audit these logins: 

name="SSO Authentication Rule - Example" 


// Needed to log AuditEvents
import sailpoint.server.Auditor;

         String userFromHeader = httpRequest.getHeader( USER_DN );
         String authServer = httpRequest.getHeader( AUTHDIR_NAME );

         Application app = mapAuthDirToApp( ctx, authServer );
         Correlator correlator = new Correlator( ctx );
         Link link = correlator.findLinkByNativeIdentity( app, 
userFromHeader );

         Identity user = null;
         if ( link != null ) {

             user = link.getIdentity();

// Write that down.
if ( Auditor.isEnabled( AuditEvent.ActionLogin ) ) // Check to see if there is auditing logging first...
Auditor.log( AuditEvent.ActionLogin, // Logging actions pertaining to logins.
userFromHeader, // The USER_DN from the HTTP Header  
user );// The Identity we mapped

        } else {

// Login fails
if ( Auditor.isEnabled( AuditEvent.ActionLoginFailure ) )  // Check to see if there is auditing logging first
Auditor.log( AuditEvent.ActionLoginFailure, // Logging an action pertaining to how much this login failed.
userFromHeader );  // The USER_DN from the HTTP Header (or lack thereof) which caused the login failure.
         return user;
