WordPress Common Steps

Step 4: Attribute Mapping

  • Attributes are user details that are stored in your Identity Provider
  • Attribute Mapping helps you to get user attributes from your IdP and map them to WordPress user attributes like firstname, lastname etc.
  • While auto registering the users in your WordPress site these attributes will automatically get mapped to your WordPress user details.
  • In miniOrange SAML plugin, go to Attribute/RoleMapping tab and fill in all the fields.
  • Username: Name of the username attribute from IdP (Keep NameID by default)
    Email: Name of the email attribute from IdP (Keep NameID by default)
    FirstName: Name of the firstname attribute from IdP
    LastName: Name of the lastname attribute from IdP
    Group/Role: Name of the Role attribute from IdP

Step 5: Role mapping (It is Optional to fill this).

  • WordPress uses a concept of Roles, designed to give the site owner the ability to control what users can and cannot do within the site.
  • WordPress has six pre-defined roles: Super Admin, Administrator, Editor, Author, Contributor and Subscriber.
  • Role mapping helps you to assign specific roles to users of a certain group in your IdP.
  • While auto registering, the users are assigned roles based on the group they are mapped to.
