How to Configure the Plugin?


The miniOrange SAML 2.0 Single Sign On (SSO) plugin converts your ASP.NET application into a SAML-compliant service provider, thereby generating the necessary details that are required for the metadata.

To configure the plugin you need to follow the steps given below:

  • Upload SP Metadata in IdP - First, you have to create an SSO application at your identity provider site by providing the details about your ASP.NET application from the service provider section on the plugin dashboard. This in turn will generate the metadata of your Identity Provider, generally in the form of a URL or a downloadable XML file.

  • Upload IdP Metadata in Plugin - Configure your miniOrange Plugin, by uploading the metadata by clicking the upload metadata button in the Identity Provider Section of the Plugin from your Identity Provider. Once these 2 steps are over, the connection between your IdP and WordPress (SP) will be complete.

  • Test Configuration - Once you have successfully configured the Identity Provider click on the Test Configuration button to check if your SSO is working correctly.

  • Attribute Mapping (Optional) - Attributes are user details stored in your Identity Provider. Everytime when your users SSO into any ASP.NET application these attributes will be automatically mapped to your ASP.NET user attributes.

  • Role Mapping (Optional) - Role Mapping is created to assign roles to users based on their SAML attributes. Through this, the particular role will be applied to users once they meet the specified conditions when logging into ASP.NET application via SSO.

Once the configuration is complete you will be redirected to your Identity provider login when you initiate SSO login from your ASP.NET application. After entering the IDP credentials the user will be logged into the ASP.NET application (SP) successfully establishing a secure Single Sign On Login.
