Identity Provider (IdP) system properties

An IdP generally offers an XML document containing their authentication and logout metadata.

For example, SSOCircle publishes their metadata online.

Browse the IdP metadata to find these entries:
  • The SingleSignOnService element with a Binding attribute that contains a value of HTTP-Redirect. The Location attribute lists the URL the integration requires for the AuthnRequest service.
  • The SingleLogoutService element with a Binding attribute that contains a value of HTTP-Redirect.The Location attribute lists the URL the integration requires for the SingleLogoutRequest service.
Note: The SAML 2.0 integration only supports binding to IdP services by HTTP-Redirect.
For example:
<SingleSignOnServiceBinding="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:bindings:HTTP-Redirect"Location="https://idp.ssocircle.com:443/sso/SSORedirect/metaAlias/ssocircle"/>
<SingleLogoutServiceBinding="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:bindings:HTTP-Redirect"Location="https://idp.ssocircle.com:443/sso/IDPSloRedirect/metaAlias/ssocircle"ResponseLocation="https://idp.ssocircle.com:443/sso/IDPSloRedirect/metaAlias/ssocircle"/>
