Configuring Egnyte for Single Sign On

  1. Log in to the Egnyte Admin console, and navigate to the Configuration tab.
  2. Select Security & Authentication from the left menu. Scroll down to the Single Sign-on Authentication section. Select SAML 2.0 authentication, with CustomRedirect as the IdentityProvider. Fill out your SSO details for login URL and entity ID.
    Note: CustomRedirect has been replaces by Generic HTTP POST.
    Enter the information copied from Passly in the text boxes provided:
    Issuer URL:Issuer URL https://(Your On-Demand Tenant)/trust
    SSO Endpoint: SAML2.0 Endpoint (HTTP) URL https://(Your On-Demand Tenant)/signin
    SSO Logout Endpoint: SLO Endpoint (HTTP) URL https://(Your On-Demand Tenant)/apps
    Note: Replace https://(Your On-Demand Tenant) with your actual tenant URL
    Certificate: X.509 Certificate
  3. Paste the encoded certificate (without the BEGIN CERTIFICATE or END CERTIFICATE parts) into the Identity Provider Certificate field.
    Leave the Default user mapping as Email Address
  4. Save the settings.
