5.6.5. Setup SAML v2 based Web SSO using HTTP/POST Binding

HTTP/POST binding is the recommended binding for obtaining the web browser based SSO.

Procedure 5.3. Setup SAML v2 based Web SSO using HTTP/POST Binding

  1. Configure the Identity Provider (IDP).

    The steps to configure IDP for HTTP/POST Binding are same as that of the HTTP/Redirect Binding. For more information on configuring the IDP, see Section 5.6.2, “Setup SAML v2 based Web SSO using HTTP/Redirect Binding”
  2. Configure the Service Provider (SP)

    Note

    The steps to configure SP for HTTP/POST Binding are the same as that of the HTTP/Redirect Binding, except for a variation in the context.xml file.
    The following is an example of the context.xml file for IDP valves.

    Example 5.13. context.xml File Configuration for IDP Valves

    <Context>
      <Valve className="org.picketlink.identity.federation.bindings.tomcat.sp.SPPostFormAuthenticator"
    />
    </Context>
    
    
    For more information on configuring the SP, see Section 5.6.4, “Configure Service Provider”
