Configuring IdPs for SSO

Certain IdPs require special configuration before you can set up SAML SSO.

The following list describes some known configuration prerequisites for specific IdPs. These are tips and, obviously, do not provide a complete description of required IdP configuration for your identity provider.


Set the expected digital signature to SHA-1
ADFS expects the digital signature to be SHA-256, but Jive sends it as SHA-1. To change this expectation, go to the Advanced tab of your Relying Party Trusts profile and set the secure hash algorithm to SHA-1.


Use the jive entityID as the Siteminder profile name
Typically, the Jive entityID, which is set using the Base metadata URL in the Advanced tab of your SAML SSO settings, is the same as the jiveURL.
