SAML Single Sign-On into Joomla using Centrify | Centrify SSO | Login using Centrify


Centrify SAML Single sign-on (SSO) is an authentication method that enables Centrify users to access multiple Joomla applications with one login and one set of credentials.

What is SSO ?


Single sign-on (SSO) is anauthenticationmethod that enables users to access multiple applications with one-click login and one set of credentials. For example, after users log in to your org, they can automatically access all apps from the App Launcher. When you set up SSO, you configure one system to trust another to authenticate users , eliminating users' need to log in to each system separately. The system that authenticates users is called an Identity provider. The system that trusts the identity provider for authentication is called the Service provider.

SAML allows exchanging of information betweenService ProviderandIdentity provider, SAML isintegration between SP and IDP. When a user tries to log in, your identity provider sends SAML assertions containing facts about the user to Identity Provider. Identity Provider receives the assertion, validates it against your Identity Provider configuration, and allows the user to access your org.


Our plugin is compatible with Joomla 4 as well as with all the SAML 2.0 compliant Identity Providers. Here we will go through a step-by-step guide to configure SAML SSO login between Joomla site and Centrify by considering Centrify as IdP (Identity Provider & Joomla as SP (Service Provider).
