Steps to configure Jira SAML Single Sign-on ( SSO ) Login into Magento 2

1. Configuring Jira as Service Provider

With the Quick Setup method, you can get the SP metadata from the first step of adding an IDP. The steps to initiate Quick Setup are given below :

  • Click on the Add New IDP button in the Configured IDPs section.
  • Add an IDP - SSO Login with Magento
  • Select the Quick Setup option in the pop-up that opens.
  • Add IDP pop-up - SSO Login with Magento

After completing the above steps, you will see the first step of the Quick Setup process. This step deals with setting up your IDP.

1.1: Service Provider Metadata

    Here you will find your SP's metadata. You will need to provide this metadata to your IDP. There are two ways to add this metadata to your IDP.

    • If your IDP supports importing the metadata, then you can choose By providing a metadata URL to the IDP.
