SAML single sign-on

SAML single sign-on

You can enable single sign-on (SSO) capability so that users can access their organization without the need to enter login information.
Single sign-on to
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
is based on the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 web browser single sign-on profile. The SAML web browser single sign-on profile consists of the following entities:
Identity provider
An entity that manages authentication information and provides authentication services through the use of security tokens.
Service provider
An entity that provides web services to principals, for example, an entity that hosts web applications.
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
is a service provider.
Principal
An end user who interacts through an HTTP user agent.
SAML 2.0 is an XML-based protocol that uses security tokens that contain assertions to pass information about a principal between an identity provider and a service provider. An assertion is a package of information that supplies statements made by a SAML authority.
When a user enters the
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
single sign-on URL in a browser, the following process occurs:
  1. Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
    sends a SAML authentication request to the organization's identity provider.
  2. The identity provider confirms the user's identity and sends a SAML authentication response to
    Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
    .
  3. When
    Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
    receives the SAML authentication response from the identity provider,
    Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
    establishes the user session and logs the user into
    Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
    .
  4. When a user logs out of
    Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
    or the session times out,
    Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
    sends a SAML logout request to the identity provider.
  5. The identity provider terminates the user session on the identity provider side.
