To access SAML settings, go to Settings -> Parameters -> SAML page. SAML settings are divided into two sections: IdP settings (HES) and Service provider settings (third-party web applications).
The IdP section allows you to:
· View metadata
· Download metadata
· Download the public key certificate
Metadata is an XML file that contains all the necessary information about the IdP settings and the public key certificate. Service providers usually allow you to import IdP metadata when configuring SAML, which simplifies the configuration. You can also download a separate certificate, if necessary, or view all metadata on the screen.
The Service Providers section contains information about all providers with which the integration is performed. The number of service providers is not limited. To configure a new service provider, click the 'Add Service Provider' button and fill in the fields with settings. You must get the values of these settings from the service provider application. The service provider usually allows downloading a metadata file with the necessary settings and a public key certificate. It can be imported into HES so that the settings would be filled in automatically.
