SonarQube Crowd Connector

The SonarQube Crowd SSO Connector allows users to enable SAML Authentication from any SAML compliant Identity Provider(IDP), where SAML SSO requests and responses to and from the IDP will pass via the Crowd server. The IDP will perform user authentication, while user permissions can still be controlled using Crowd.
