NextCloud is a suite of client-server software for creating and using file hosting services. NextCloud’s application functionally is similar to Dropbox. Unlike Dropbox, Nextcloud does not offer off-premises file storage hosting. Nextcloud is free and open-source, which means that anyone is allowed to install and operate it on their own private server devices. Login using WordPress Users (WP as SAML IDP) Plugin enables Single Sign-On (SSO) login into NextCloud using WordPress Login credentials, i.e. authentication via WordPress. In this guide we will set up NextCloud SSO login for WordPress (WP) users by configuring NextCloud as Service Provider (SP) and WordPress as the Identity Provider (IDP).
To integrate the WordPress site as an Identity Provider, you will need to install the miniOrange Login using WordPress Users ( WP as SAML IDP ) plugin:
|Attribute to map the UID to|
|Identifier of the IDP Entity||Copy and paste the IDP Entity ID.|
|URL Target of the IdP||Copy and paste the SAML Login URL.|
|Certificate||Download the Certificate. Open it in notepad. Copy and paste the content here.|
You have successfully configured NextCloud as Service Provider.
|Service Provider Name||NextCloud|
|SP Entity ID or Issuer||https://<your Nextcloud URL>/index.php/apps/user_saml/saml/metadata|
|ACS URL||https://<your Nextcloud URL>/index.php/apps/user_saml/saml/acs|
|Name||User Meta Data|
In this Guide, you have successfully integrated NextCloud SSO via the Login using WordPress Users (WP as SAML IDP) Plugin by configuring NextCloud as SP and WordPress as IDP. This solution ensures that you are ready to roll out secure Single Sign-On (SSO) access with SAML 2.0 Authentication into NextCloud using WordPress login credentials (Nextcloud WP SSO).
