Follow the steps below to configure Absorb LMS as an Identity Provider
In the miniOrange SAML 2.0 SSO plugin, navigate to Service Provider Metadata tab. Here, you can find the SP metadata such as SP Entity ID and ACS (AssertionConsumerService) URL which are required to configure the Identity Provider.
Login to the Absorb admin portal as a System Admin and navigate to Portal Settings. From Portal Settings, there is a button in the right-side menu labelled Manage SSO Settings. If you can't see this button, please contact your Absorb Client Success Manager to discuss enabling the feature.
Click Add at the bottom of the page.
Now in the Name field you can enter some descriptive connection name of your choice. This name is only visible to admins.
In the Method field select SAML.
In the Key field enter the Service provider certificate which you can get from the miniOrange SAML plugin under the Service Provider Setup tab.
In the Id Property field select the Absorb user profile field that Absorb should send as the NameID in the SAML assertion. This should be a unique identifier for learners.
The Assertion Consumer Service Url can be left blank as it should be provided to Absorb via the SAML Request. However if you are experiencing issues, you can hard code an ACS URL which you can get from the Service Provider Setup tab of the miniOrange SAML plugin.
Set the Signature Type to SHA1.
