Last updated: 2024-01-23 17:46:25

    Creating a SAML IdP

    You can create an IdP via either Cloud Access Management Console or CAM API.

    Creating an IdP via Console

    1. To create a SAML IdP, you need to obtain a federation metadata document from your IdP. This document includes the publisher's name and the key to verify the SAML assertions received from the IdP.
    The metadata document is an XML file encoded in UTF-8 format without a Byte Order Mark (BOM). The document size cannot exceed 40 KB. If it exceeds this size, you can manually modify the metadata document, retaining only the elements mentioned above.
    2. Log in to the Cloud Access Management Console and navigate to the Identity Providers > Role SSO page. Then click Create Provider.
    3. On the Create Identity Provider page, select the provider type as SAML, configure the provider information, and click Next.
    IdP Name: Enter the name of the IdP.
    Remarks: Enter any notes or comments you have about the current IdP.
    Metadata Document: You need to upload the SAML metadata document that you downloaded in step 1 of the Upload Metadata Document process. The upload will be successful only after the content of the metadata document is verified as valid.
    4. Review the information about the IdP you have entered. After confirming that everything is correct, click Complete to create the IdP.

    Creating an IdP via API

    To create an IdP and upload the metadata document, invoke the CreateSAMLProvider interface.
