Sysdig-Specific Steps for OneLogin Configuration

Adding the SAML Test Connector

At the step for “Adding the SAML Test Connector”, select SAML Test Connector (IdP w/ attr w/ sign response). If you don’t intend to configure IDP-initiated login flow, uncheck the slider so it will no longer be “Visible in portal”.

Test Connector Configuration Page Settings

At the “Test Connector Configuration Page”, enter the values shown in the table below. If you wish to configure IDP-initiated login flow, replace CUSTOMER-ID-NUMBER with the number retrieved as described in the Find Your Customer Number article.

You must include the port number in the IDP-side configuration, even though port 443 is the typical default for https:// URLs.

(Optional) If you want the user’s First Name and Last Name to be included in the records created in the Sysdig platform’s database when new users successfully login via SAML for the first time, click to the Parameters tab. Click Add parameter and create each of two New Fields, checking the box each time to Include in SAML assertion.

Issuer URL

Click to the SSO tab, copy the Issuer URL, and paste in the Metadata entry on the SAML Configuration page in the SAML connection settings.

Test Metadata (Optional)

To ensure the metadata URL you copy at the end of the IDP configuration procedure is correct, you can test it by directly accessing it via your browser.

When accessing the URL, your browser should immediately download an XML file that begins similarly to the example shown below. No entry of credentials or other security measures should be required to successfully download it. If this is not the case, revisit the IDP configuration steps.
