SAML Single Sign-On into Magento using Gluu Server as an Identity Provider (IdP)


Gluu Server Single Sign-On (SSO) login for Magento [SAML] can be achieved by using our Magento SAML SP Single Sign-On (SSO) plugin. Our SSO solution will make Magento SAML 2.0 compliant Service Provider establishing trust between the Magento site and Gluu Server to securely authenticate and login users to the Magento site. Our Magento Single Sign-On (SSO) solution helps to secure Magento sites behind the SSO login so that users are authenticated using their Gluu Server login credentials. Seamless support for advanced SSO features like Attribute / Custom Mapping, Role Mapping etc.

SAML allows information to be exchanged between Service Providers and Identity Providers; SAML is the integration of Service Providers and Identity Providers. When a user attempts to log in, your Service provider delivers SAML assertions to Identity Provider, which contain information about the user. The assertion is received by Identity Provider, which validates it against your Service Provider settings before allowing the user access to your org.

Here we will go through a guide to configure SAML Single Sign-On SSO login between Magento site and Gluu Server by considering Gluu Server as IdP (Identity Provider) and Magento as SP (Service Provider). Our SSO plugin provides Unlimited user authentications from Gluu Server. To know more about other features we provide in you Magento SAML Single Sign-On (SSO) plugin, you can click here.
