Once you have clicked on the settings tab, you will be able to see the SAML SSO settings. You will need to enter the following information from the metadata XML file (You will need to open the file and get the text content of the file to be able to paste it into the form):

  • IdP Entity ID: The entityID in the <md:EntityDescriptor> tag from the metadata file
  • Target URL: The Location in the <md:SingleSignOnService> tag from the metadata file
