Import From Metadata

If you have a SAML Metadata file/URL from your IDP, you can configure the plugin by uploading the metadata file or configuring the metadata URL. Select your option accordingly.

  • Metadata Rollover: Some of the IDPs like Azure AD has a security feature called Signing key Rollover where IDP Signing certificate is changed on a periodic basis or in case of emergency, could be rolled over immediately. To handle such kind of situations, the add-on can be configured to continuously ping the IDP’s metadata URL at configured time intervals and update the configured Signing Certificate so that SSO will remain unaffected.
