Test the SAML integration

After completing all other setup tasks, test the integration.

Before you begin

Role required: admin

Procedure

  1. Log in to the instance as a user with the admin role.
  2. Navigate to SAML 2 Single Sign-on > Properties.
  3. In the property Enable external authentication, select Yes.
    Note:

    Enabling external authentication requires all users to use SAML 2.0 single sign-on. Thus, if anyone tries to access the application in an unauthenticated state, the instance automatically sends an authentication request to the (IdP) and redirects the user to the SAML IdP Authentication page.

  4. Click Save.
  5. Log out of the instance.
  6. Browse to the instance URL. If the integration is functioning properly, the IdP should ask for the users credentials.
