This tab provides you the following features:

    1. Relay State URL
      • If this Relay State URL is set, users will always be redirected to this URL after SSO into WordPress. This feature can be used whenever the site owner wants users to be redirected to a particular page after they perform SSO.

    1. Redirect to IDP if user not logged in
      • This feature will restrict the site to only logged in users, this will redirect the users to IDP if logged in session is not found.This feature can be used to protect the site. Through this, users who are trying to access the site but are not logged in will be redirected to the IDP for authentication.
    2. Force Authentication
      • By enabling this feature, you can force the users to provide their credentials on IdP each time they attempt to login.This feature can be used wherever there are multiple users working on a device. It might happen that a user attempts to login by some other user’s credentials. This feature will force every time, to first provide the credentials on IDP for authentication and then allows to login.
    3. Enable access to RSS feeds
      • You can anytime enable access to RSS Feeds. This feature will allow users to receive regular updates from a website or blog of their choice directly in their feed readers, applications or any other devices.

    1. Redirect to IDP from WordPress login page
      • Redirect the users visiting WordPress Login page to your configured IDP for authentication. This feature can be used if let’s suppose a site owner do not want users to visit the login page and instead authenticate from IdP. So every time a user wants to login, it will have to provide its IdP credentials.
      • By enabling this feature users can’t visit the wordpress login page but in case if it gets locked out of the IDP and wants to visit the login page, it has the backdoor to login to the website using WordPress credentials. Users just need to store the below provided URL and each time they gets stuck, they can simply hit that URL and login through wordpress credentials.
