How to Configure the Plugin?

The miniOrange DNN SAML 2.0 Single Sign On (SSO) plugin converts your DNN site 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 DNN site 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 the plugin - Configure your miniOrange DNN SAML SSO 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 DNN site (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.

  • Login Settings - This tab helps you to initiate SSO with your DNN site in different ways by redirecting users to specific/dynamic pages before login and after login.

  • Attribute Mapping (Optional) - Attributes are user details stored in your identity provider. Every time when your user SSO into the DNN Site these attributes will be automatically mapped to your DNN user profile.

  • 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 the DNN site via SSO.

Once the configuration is complete you will be redirected to your identity provider login when you initiate SSO login from your DNN site. After entering the IDP credentials the user will be logged into the DNN site (service provider) successfully establishing a secure Single Sign On Login.
