Confluence SAML app gives the ability to enable SAML Single Sign On for Confluence Software. Confluence Software is compatible with all SAML Identity Providers. Here we will go through a guide to configure SSO between Confluence and your Identity Provider. By the end of this guide, users from your Identity Provider should be able to login and register to Confluence Software.
To integrate your Identity Provider(IDP) with Confluence, you need the following items:
All the information required to configure the Ping One as IDP i.e. plugin’s metadata is given in the Service Provider Info tab of the miniOrange SAML plugin.
Provide the SAML configuration details for the application.
1.Signing. In the dropdown list, select the signing certificate you want to use.
2.SAML Metadata. Click Download to retrieve the SAML metadata for Ping One. This supplies the Ping One connection information to the application.
3.Protocol Version. Select the SAML protocol version appropriate for your application.
4.Upload Metadata. Click Choose File to upload the application’s metadata file. The entries for ACS URL and Entity ID will then be supplied for you. If you do not upload the application metadata, you will need to enter this information manually. When you are manually assigning an Entity ID value, the Entity ID must be unique, unless you are assigning the Entity ID value for a private, managed application (an application that is supplied and configured by a PingOne for Enterprise administrator, rather than by an SP.
5.Single Logout Endpoint. The URL to which our service will send the SAML Single Logout (SLO) request using the Single Logout Binding Type that you select.
6.Single Logout Response Endpoint. The URL to which your service will send the SLO Response.
7.Single Logout Binding Type. Select the binding type (Redirect or POST) to use for SLO.
8.Primary Verification Certificate. Click Choose File to upload the primary public verification certificate to use for verifying the SP signatures on SLO requests and responses.
9.Signing Algorithm. Use the default value or select the algorithm to use from the dropdown list.
I.Encrypt Assertion. If selected, the assertions PingOne sends to the SP for the application will be encrypted.
II.Encryption Certificate: Upload the certificate from miniOrange plugin to use to encrypt the assertions.
III.Encryption Algorithm: Choose the algorithm to use for encrypting the assertions. We recommend AES_256 (the default), but you can select AES_128 instead.
IV.Transport Algorithm: The algorithm used for securely transporting the encryption key. Currently, RSA-OAEP is the only transport algorithm supported.
V.Force Re-authentication. If selected, users having a current, active SSO session will be re- authenticated by the identity bridge to establish a connection to this application.
Now we will go through the steps to setup Confluence as a Service Provider using miniOrange add-on:
Configure Identity Provider
By Metadata URL:
By uploading Metadata XML file:
IDP Entity ID
Single Sign On URL
Single Logout URL
Configure Multiple Identity Providers
When user logs into Confluence, one of the user’s data/attribute coming in from the IDP is used to search the user in Confluence. This is used to detect the user in Confluence and login the user to the same account.
