1.2 Configuring the service provider

Download [SimpleSamlphp] and install it in /opt/simplesamlphp/. Make sure the file /opt/simplesamlphp/lib/_autoload.php exists. Follow the [SimpleSAMLphp Service Provider QuickStart] guide and configure the service provider. You will need your identity provider's metadata.

1.3 Configuring your identity provider

Configure your identity provider to send the following attributes to the service provider:

  • eduPersonTargetedId: A unique user identifier.
  • commonName: The name of the user.
  • mail: The user's email.
  • schacHomeOrganization: The group the user belongs to. It must exist in your Pandora FMS Console.

1.4 Logging in

Navigate to your Pandora FMS Console and click on the Login button. You will be redirected to your identity provider.
