Configuring SAML

Before configuring SAML in Shares, make sure you have properly configured your SAML IdP (see Configuring Your Identity Provider (IdP)).
  1. In IBM Aspera Shares, go to Admin > Accounts > Directories. Click Edit for the SAML Identity Provider.
  2. For the SAML IdP entry, click Edit.
  3. To enable SAML, select the check box Log in using the SAML Identity Provider.
  4. Optional: Enable SAML login redirection.
    If enabled, entering the default Shares URL will direct users to the SAML login page. If disabled, the Shares URL will direct users to the local login page.

  5. Enter the SAML entry-point address provided by the IdP in the IdP Single Sign-On URL text box.
  6. Enter the Identity Provider Certificate Fingerprint.
  7. Enter the Identity Provider Certificate.
  8. Click Save.
