Supported SAMLv2 SSO providers are Okta and Azure ADFS. Please follow the steps from and sub-sections in order to configure the corresponding SSO.
It is possible to configure SAMLv2 ‘Single Sign-On’ on an account basis in the account configuration:

  • Under SSO method specify “SAMLv2” to enable SSO. Specify “None” to disable SSO. There is no need to add values for the SSO XML Metadata URL if SSO method has “None” value.
  • SSO XML Metadata URL: the XML metadata URL from the SSO providers SAMLv2 configuration.
  • SSO Single Logout URL: the URL to the logout endpoint of the SSO provider. This field is optional.
  • SSO Issuer ID: the issuer ID which is sent to SAML SSO provider. If not specified the URL taken from the browser will be used in the form https://account:8443/.

Notes on the XML Metadata URL:

Instead of a http/s URL the metadata can also be specified with a file URL like this:

  • file:/{filename}
  • file:///{filename}

where {filename} refers to a file placed in the SAFEQ Cloud installation folder under <install-root>/conf/{filename}.
The file size limit is 1 megabyte. Symbolic links are not allowed. Upon saving the configuration the specified file is checked for XML validity.
In a cluster setup this file must be placed on every cluster node.
