SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is an XML-based protocol for controlling authentication between Identity Provider (IdP) and the service provider. This integration allows IdP, using LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) protocol, to be configured to use Microsoft Windows Active Directory (AD) or OpenLDAP as a username and password directory. This integration needs to be configured in Suite Manager to specify the IdP service to use in order to authenticate user logins.
When SAML authentication is enabled and configured, users will be directed to the IdP login when logging into Suite.
For each user account that will be logging in using SAML authentication, you must associate the person with his/her Distinguished Name.
Suite only supports integration with SAML 2.0.
