Configuring SAML IdP local-membership.config
Each SAML identity provider (IdP) must be added as an ASP.NET membership provider in the local-membership.config file.
- Navigate to the Ingeniux CMS installation's site folder (e.g., [Drive]:[path-to-site-root-folder]).
- Locate the local-membership.config file, and open it in a text editor.
- Create an
<add>element for each SAML IdP as an ASP.NET membership provider. Configure the following attributes:
Enter the SSO Provider Display Name. The system uses the name attribute as the provider name and label when selecting an authentication method from the Log in to menu on the CMS login page.Additional Information
As with any other provider configured for Ingeniux CMS, you can use the
@namevalue as the
@defaultProvidervalue. Access this attribute in the top-level
If you configure the CMS with SAML as the only provider and as the
@defaultProvidervalue, the system redirects the user to the SAML login page, automatically.
Enter the type of provider. Example: Ingeniux.CMS.Models.SAMLProvider.
Enter the SAML configuration partner name value. The
@idpPartnerattribute keys to the name of the partner attribute within your configured saml.config file.NoteFor Okta, the
<add>element would be configured this way:
<add name="Okta" type="Ingeniux.CMS.Models.SAMLProvider" idpPartner="http://www.okta.com/[okta_unique_id_here]" />
- Save changes to local-membership.config.
- Recycle the CMS application pool after deploying these changes,
