Connect your site to a SAML/CAS IDentity Provider (IDP) as a Service Provider (SP) or configure your Elgg installation as an IDP.

Requirements

  • installation of SimpleSAMLPHP
  • read the INSTALL.txt

Features

  • Act as SAML Service Provider (SP)
  • Act as CAS Service Provider (SP)

  • Login with federated accounts
  • Optionally create accounts based on federated account data
  • Link existing account to multiple external accounts
  • Force authentication to an external IDP
    All your users will be forced to login using the configured external IDP
  • Automaticly create user accounts based on the information provided by the external IDP
    This requires that the following attributes are set in the configuration of the SP
    • elgg:email => the email address of the user
    • elgg:firstname or elgg:lastname => because we need to create a displayname
    • elgg:external_id => to link the newly created account to the external account
  • Automaticly link existing users based on their profile information and information from the IDP
    This requires that the following attributes are set in the configuration of the SP
    • elgg:external_id => the unique ID of the user on the IDP side
    • elgg:auto_link => the value that the configured profile field must have to automaticly link the user
  • Remember login
    Set the remember me cookie so the user doesn't have to authenticate every browser session
