  • In the top navigation menu, click on Applications → Application Catalog.
  • RSA SecurID sso-1
  • Click Create From Template button on the top right corner.
  • RSA SecurID sso-2
  • Click on Select Button next to the SAML Direct, in the Choose Connector Template page.
  • RSA SecurID sso-3
  • Fill the required information in the Basic Information .

    • Name: Name of the application for eg. miniOrange Plugin.
    • Description (Optional): Description for your application.
    • Disabled [a checkbox] (optional): Select this only if you want to make this application unavailable to users. When disabled, the application appears in My Application but does not appear in the RSA application portal.
    • RSA SecurID sso-4
    • Now click on the Next Step button.

  •  Connection Profile

    • Click on Import Metadata button.
    • RSA SecurID sso-5
    • Upload the miniOrange plugin’s metadata file. You can download the plugin's metadata file from the Service Provider Metadata tab of the plugin.
    • Verify the configured URLs and clicks on the Save button on the top right corner of Import SAML Metadata window page.
    • RSA SecurID sso-6
    • Check if plugin metadata is imported successfully.
    • RSA SecurID sso-7

     Initiate SAML Workflow

    • Connection URL: Enter the URL from where the SSO request will be generated i.e. the URL where you want to redirect after successful Single Sign On.
    • Select SP-Initiated, since the SSO is invoked from the Application side.
    • Binding Method for SAML Request: POST
      (Note: The free version of WP SAML SSO Plugin supports only POST binding for SAML Requests.)

    • RSA SecurID sso-10

     Advanced Configuration: Attribute Extention (Optional)

    • Configure additional user information to be sent to the Application in the SAML Response. For example, username, email, display name, groups etc.
