Steps to Configure the ASP.NET SAML 2.0 Module

Step 1: Download and extract the package

  • Download miniOrange ASP.NET SAML 2.0 Module.
  • To set up the module, extract the file asp.net-saml-sso-module-xxx.zip. You will find a DLL named miniorange-saml-sso.dll, a configuration file named saml.config and an integration.md file which contains steps for adding the module into your application.

Step 2: Add the module in your application

  • Add miniorange-saml-sso.dll into your bin folder (where other DLL files for your application exist).
  • Register minorangesamlsso module in your application according to the steps provided in the file named integration.md.
  • Add the provided configuration file saml.config in the root directory of your application.
  • After integration, open your browser and browse the connector dashboard with the URL below:
    https://<your-application-base-url>/?ssoaction=config
  • If the registration page or login page pops up, you have successfully added the miniOrange SAML SSO connector to your application.
  • ASP.NET SAML SSO - saml dll register
  • Register or log in with your account by clicking the Register button to configure the module.

Step 3: Configure your Identity Provider

  • Under the Plugin Settings tab, select your identity provider from the list shown.
  • ASP.NET SAML SSO - Select identity provider

There are two ways detailed below with which you can get the SAML SP metadata to configure onto your identity provider end.

A] Using SAML metadata URL or metadata file:
  • In the Plugin Settings menu, look for Service Provider Settings. Under that, you can find the metadata URL as well as the option to download the SAML metadata.
  • Copy metadata URL or download the metadata file to configure the same on your identity provider end.
  • You may refer to the screenshot below:
  • ASP.NET SAML SSO - Copy Downloaded Metadata
B] Uploading metadata manually:
  • From the Service Provider Settings section, you can manually copy the service provider metadata like SP Entity ID, ACS URL, Single Logout URL and share it with your identity provider for configuration.
  • You may refer to the screenshot below:
  • ASP.NET SAML SSO - Manual Metadata

Step 4: Configure your Service Provider (SSO Module)

There are two ways detailed below with which you can configure your SAML identity provider metadata in the module.

A] Upload metadata using the Upload IDP Metadata button:
  • If your identity provider has provided you with the metadata URL or metadata file (.xml format only), then you can simply configure the identity provider metadata in the module using the Upload IDP Metadata option.
  • You may refer to the screenshot below:
  • ASP.NET SAML SSO - Upload Metadata
  • You can choose any one of the options according to the metadata format you have available.
B] Configure the identity provider metadata manually:
  • After configuring your Identity Provider, it will provide you with IDP Entity ID, IDP Single Sign On URL and SAML X509 Certificate fields respectively.
  • Click Save to save your IDP details.
  • ASP.NET SAML SSO - SAML dll config

Step 5: Test Configuration

  • Click on the Test Configuration button to test whether the SAML Configuration you’ve done is correct.
  • The screenshot below shows a successful result. Click on SSO Integration to further continue with the SSO Integration.
  • ASP.NET SAML SSO - SAML dll Test configuration
  • If you are experiencing any error on the module end you’ll be shown with the window similar to below.
  • ASP.NET SAML SSO - Enable debug logs
  • To troubleshoot the error you can follow the below steps:
    • Under Troubleshoot tab, enable the toggle to receive the plugin logs.
    • ASP.NET SAML SSO - Enable debug logs
    • Once enabled, you will be able to retrieve plugin logs by navigating to Plugin Settings tab and clicking on Test Configuration.
    • Download the log file from the Troubleshoot tab to see what went wrong.
    • You can share the log file with us at aspnetsupport@xecurify.com and our team will reach out to you to resolve your issue.

Step 6: Integration Code

  • You can find the Integration code in the Integration Code tab in the module. Just copy-paste that code snippet wherever you want to access the user attributes.
  • Note: All the mapped attributes will be stored in the session so that you can access them in your application.

Step 7: Add the following link into your application for Single Sign-On (SSO)

  • Use the following URL as a link in the application from where you want to perform SSO:
    https://base-url/?ssoaction=login
  • For example, you can use it as:
    <a href=”https://base-url/?ssoaction=login”>Log in</a>

Step 8: Add the following link into your application for SLO

  • Use the following URL as a link to your application from where you want to perform SLO:
    https://base-url/ssoaction=logout
  • For example, you can use it as:
    <a href=”https://base-url/ssoaction=logout”>Log out</a>
