Step 3: Attribute Mapping. (It is Optional to fill this.) This is Premium feature.
- Attributes are user details that are stored in your Identity Provider(IdP).
- Attribute Mapping helps you to get user attributes from your Identity Provider(IdP) and map them to Drupal user attributes like firstname, lastname etc.
- While auto registering the users in your Drupal site these attributes will automatically get mapped to your Drupal user details.
- In miniOrange SAML plugin, go to Mapping tab. Enter the following values:
||Name of the username attribute from IdP (Keep NameID by default)
||Name of the email attribute from IdP (Keep NameID by default)
||Name of the Role attribute from Identity Provider (IdP)
- You can check the Test Configuration Results under Service Provider Setup tab to get a better idea of which values to map here.
Step 4: Role Mapping (It is Optional to fill this). This is Premium feature.
- Drupal uses a concept of Roles, designed to give the site owner the ability to control what users can and cannot do within the site.
- Role mapping helps you to assign specific roles to users of a certain group in your Identity Provider (IdP).
- While auto registering, the users are assigned roles based on the group they are mapped to.
- Under the Role Mapping section, configure which GROUP value coming in the SAML response needs to be mapped to which role in Drupal. The Group value coming in the SAML response will be mapped to the Role assigned here and the user will be assigned that role in Drupal.
