How to Set Up SAML SSO via WordPress

Morten Toft Updated by Morten Toft

To integrate with our WordPress AD, you need a thirdparty plugin from Minioranges.

There are a couple of Miniorange plugins and the plugin you need is:

SAML & WSFED IDP (SSO using WordPress Users)

After installation you will have to setup the SAML connection in both Ideanote and in WordPress.

WordPress:

1. Go to "Service Providers" in the plugin settings. Enter the following values and save the configuration:

Service Provider Name: Ideanote

SP Entity ID or Issuer: https://api.ideanote.io/sso/saml/metadata.xml

ACS URL: https://api.ideanote.io/sso/saml/callback

NameID format: urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.1:nameid-format:emailAddress

2. Go to "IDP Metadata" and download the "metadata.xml" file. You can do this by right clicking the URL ending with "metadata.xml" and click "Save link as..."

Ideanote:

1. Go to your Ideanote workspace.

2. Find "Settings" in the bottom left-hand corner.

3. Click "Advanced Security" and toggle "SAML".

4. You will be directed to a page where you can click "Upload IDP-metadata". You will have to upload the "metadata.xml"-file that you downloaded in the previous steps.

5. Click "Save".

Afterwards you can test your SAML-setup by logging out of Ideanote (by clicking your avatar in the upper right-hand corner), and logging in using SAML.
