Using generic SAML2, you can integrate OpenStack Management Server with any Identity Provider solution within your organization. Generic SAML2 authenticates directly with the identity service.
Since this integration does not automatically associate the Keystone Service Provider with your Identity Provider solution, contact your Identity Provider deployment administrator to collect information for mapping before configuring SAML2 integration.
SAML2 Federation uses a single OpenStack Management Server deployment.
- Add an Identity Provider on the OpenStack Management Server deployment.
viocli federation identity-provider add
