This article describes the SAMLv2 server type.
About the Server Type
The SAML v2 server form contains the following:
- IDP Configuration URL - Configuration URL provided by the Identity provider (IDP).
- Name identifier format - The format of the identifier to request, possible values are:
- Name attribute key - Name of key passed back from the IDP
- Groups attribute key - Name of key to find group names passed back in the SAML assertion
- IDP configuration (in days) - The number of days to cache the configuration from the IDP server. After the cache has expired, we will fetch an updated configuration from the IDP Configuration URL.
- IDP Configuration (XML) - the XML received from the IDP Configuration URL. Alternatively, you can provide just the IDP configuration without the IDP Configuration URL.
