SAML Authentication for App Center

Created: 02 Nov 2012 | 2 comments

I'm running a trial App Center version  R4.0.1build19.  I have configured SAML as authentication and it shows green light connection successful.  However, when I request App Center, I still get the standard login with AppCenter user store credentials for authetication.  Any additional steps I'm missing?

Thanks,

Matt

Hello Matt,

I believe App Center currently supports only SP initiated requests. This means that you still need to provide the username and password that is tied to your SAML IDP. In this particular case, we are passing the authentication request to your SAML IDP and using the returned token to authenticate to App Center. I believe there are ways to support IDP intiated request for the web portal, but not for the native mobile clients. 

Just to get a better grasp of then environment, who is your SAML ID provider?

Dishwishy,

I'm using O3 as the IDP.  I think my problem is version, as the suport version of App Center is 4.1 Enterprise I'm learning.  I am doing SP Initiated, going to AppCenter first.  Thanks!

Regards,

Matt
