We will go through the steps to setup WordPress as a Service Provider. Here, we will be adding the IdP metadata to configure the plugin.
NOTE: If you click on Test Configuration button in Service Provider Setup tab and authenticate with your IDP, you can see a list of attributes sent by the IDP in the Attribute/Role mapping tab. This information can be used to provide the above mapping.
In the standard plugin, you can choose a default role which will be assigned to all the non-admin users when they perform SSO.
In the Standard plugin you can enable SP-initiated SSO using the following options.
NOTE: Please enable the Backdoor login and note down the backdoor URL. This will allow you to access the WordPress login page in case you get locked out of the IDP.
