Other SAML providers#
Rackspace Identity Federation is designed to be compatible with any SAML 2.0-based identity provider. The following information provides basic settings that are needed to configure a third-party SAML provider.
SAML configuration items#
SAML providers require one or more of the following links or URLS to configure the connection to Rackspace and to redirect during login sessions.
The metadata file contains the latest certificate for signing SAML assertions.
The default values can be retrieved programmatically from the Rackspace service provider metadata file at https://login.rackspace.com/federate/sp.xml and are shown in the following list:
|Assertion Consumer Service ("Single Sign On URL")||https://login.rackspace.com/federate/acs|
|Single Logout Service||https://login.rackspace.com/federate/sls|
SAML attribute mapping#
You need to set up an Attribute Mapping Policy to ensure that the SAML attributes that your identity provider sends during the SAML login process are mapped to the required or desired values for Rackspace.
You can find an overview of Attribute Mapping and example mapping policies at Configure the Attribute Mapping Policy.
