Configure the Identity Provider

Configure the Identity Provider

Configure the identity provider to issue SAML tokens to Informatica web applications.
Perform the following tasks to configure the identity provider:
  • Add a relying party trust for the domain in the identity provider. The relying party trust definition enables the identity provider to accept authentication requests from Informatica web applications that run in the domain.
  • Edit the Send LDAP Attributes as Claims rule to map LDAP attributes in your identity store to the corresponding types used in SAML tokens issued by the identity provider.
You provide the name of the relying party trust when you enable SAML authentication in a domain. Depending on your security requirements, you might create multiple relying party trusts in the identity provider to enable domains used by different organizations within the enterprise to use SAML authentication.
Informatica recognizes "Informatica" as the default relying party trust name. If you create a single relying party trust with "Informatica" as the relying party trust name, you do not need to provide the relying party trust name when you enable SAML authentication in a domain.
All strings are case sensitive in the identity provider, including URLs.
