Single Sign On SAML 2.0

SocialClimb supports enterprise single sign-on (SSO) using the SAML 2.0 standard ( Authentication is supported via both IDP and SP workflows and allows for JIT user provisioning.

SocialClimb uses OneLogin’s SAML Python Toolkit.

SocialClimb requires AuthNRequest and LogoutRequest are signed

Setup Requirements

SSO integration requires coordination between your IT department and the SocialClimb implementation team. The data that needs to be prepared prior to the integration is:

  • Metadata xml file. The metadata file should follow the SAML 2.0 standard and include all of the information necessary for SocialClimb to validate the authentication request with the identity provider. Your IDP system should be able to generate this file.
  • Socialclimb requires two Attributes/Claims in order to enable JIT user provisioning.

Required Attributes(Claims)

<Attribute Name="Role">

Role can be Administrator, Service User, Office Staff, Location Admin

<Attribute Name="">

Email should be valid and match the IDP users identity
