Then press the Update button below to save.

Then navigate to the User Attributes tab, and select the User Attributes: Full Name, Email, and Username:

3. Metadata

SAML metadata is an XML document that gives the necessary information about the Identity Provider’s configuration so that Kantega SSO as the relying party can establish trust with the Identity Provider.

Generate the correct Metadata URL to your SAML setup in WSO2 Asgardeo after the following pattern:{organization_name}/identity/metadata/saml2

In the above URL, {organization_name} should be replaced by your organization name in your WSO2 Asgardeo account. See how this is set up in Kantega SSO in the below screenshot:


Do check in a browser that the URL you generate returns an XML text. Read more about the contents returned from the metadata URL on WSO2 Asgardeo’s documentation:

Alternatively, to generate and link to the Metadata URL you may select the Info tab and Download IdP metadata, and upload in Kantega SSO.


4. Redirect URL

The redirect URL that Kantega SSO needs to redirect the user to the correct location (the SAML 2.0 login page) on the Identity Provider. This value is usually retrieved from the metadata document in the previous step.

5. Certificate

The SAML signing certificate is usually imported from the metadata document.

6. Summary

Check that everything looks good and submit your setup
