After you create and enable a SAML authenticator for the identity provider you want to use, you might need to generate View Connection Server metadata. You use this metadata to create a service provider on the Access Point appliance or a third-party load balancer that is the identity provider.
Verify that you have created a SAML authenticator for the identity provider: Access Point or a third-party load balancer or gateway. In the System Health section on the View Administrator dashboard, you can select , select the SAML authenticator that you added, and verify the details.
- Open a new browser tab and enter the URL for getting the View Connection Server SAML metadata.
In this example, connection-server.example.com is the fully qualified domain name of the View Connection Server host.
This page displays the SAML metadata from View Connection Server.
- Use a Save As command to save the Web page to an XML file.
For example, you could save the page to a file named connection-server-metadata.xml. The contents of this file begin with the following text:
<md:EntityDescriptor xmlns:md="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:metadata" ...
What to do next
Use the appropriate procedure on the identity provider to copy in the View Connection Server SAML metadata. Refer to the documentation for Access Point or a third-party load balancer or gateway.
