Enable SAML Authentication in a Domain

Enable SAML Authentication in a Domain

Configure the identity provider, the Informatica domain, and the gateway nodes within the domain to use SAML authentication.
To configure SAML authentication for supported Informatica web applications that run in a domain, perform the following tasks:
  1. Create an LDAP configuration to connect to the LDAP identity store that contains Informatica web application user accounts. You also create an LDAP security domain, and then import the user accounts into the security domain.
  2. Export the assertion signing certificate from the identity provider.
  3. Import the assertion signing certificate into a truststore file on each gateway node in the domain. You can import the certificate into the Informatica default truststore file, or into a custom truststore file.
  4. Add one or more relying party trusts or service providers in the identity provider.
  5. Add the URL for each Informatica web application to the identity provider.
  6. Enable SAML authentication in the domain.
  7. Enable SAML authentication on every gateway node in the domain.
