Setting Up Custom SAML Fields

Faspex can import SAML fields in your SAML identity provider (IdP) as user profile fields. (For more information on user profile fields, see Configuring Custom User Fields).

You can import different custom fields for each individual IdP.

  1. Add new SAML fields in your SAML identity provider. These fields must be correctly mapped to the SAML directory service.
  2. Go to Server > Authentication > SAML Integration and click the SAML configuration for which you want to configure custom attributes.
    Go to the Attribute Mapping section and add custom fields to Local Custom Profile Fields. These are custom user attributes that only apply to this IdP. Click Add Local Profile Field for each field you want to configure.
    The following section describes configuration options for a SAML custom field:
    Configuration Option Description
    Enabled Select this box to enable or disable the custom field. (Fields are enabled by default.)
    Name Enter the desired name of your custom field into the text box. This field applies to Local users.
    SAML Name Enter the name of the SAML field found in your IdP.
    Important: The Faspex SAML Name must be correctly mapped to your SAML fields in IdP. If the names are incorrectly mapped, Faspex rejects the user login. For more information on custom SAML fields, see Setting Up Custom SAML Fields.
    Required Require that a SAML response includes the SAML name mapped to this custom field. SAML user login fails when the field is required, but the SAML response does not include the required custom attributes.
    Click the button to delete a field. Faspex opens a pop-up that prompts you to confirm by clicking OK to delete the field.
    Note: Deleting a field permanently deletes the custom field and all its data from all existing users.
  3. Click Update SAML Configuration.
