Enable Single Sign-On (SSO) for Apps with WSO2 as IDP | WSO2 IS SSO Login

miniOrange offers a Single Sign-On (SSO) solution for WSO2 that enables users to log in to multiple applications using their existing WSO2 Identity Server credentials. Here WSO2 IS acts as an Identity Provider (IDP) and the applications as Service Providers (SP). miniOrange acts as a broker, to provide secure login access for users. With this SSO solution, users can seamlessly access multiple applications without having to repeatedly enter their login credentials. SSO feature is available in any WSO2 IS version from 4.1.0 onward.

In this setup, you will know how to configure SSO for the application using WSO2 IS as IDP step-by-step. Overall this eliminates the need to manage different identities as all information is stored in a unified location - WSO2 Identity Server. Once WSO2 SSO is configured, you will be able to :

  • SSO login to your Cloud, On-Premise, and in-house apps using WSO2 IS credentials
  • Cross Protocol Authentication (Connect app supporting different protocols to IDP supporting different protocols)
  • Attribute Mapping
  • Multiple IDP Connection

Follow the easy steps given in this guide to log in using WSO2 IS as IDP.

    For On-Premise IDP - https://yourdomain.com/discovery?customerId=<customer_id>

  • You should copy the Customer Key from admin console-> Settings -> and replace it with <customer_id> here. Once configured in SP, when you initiate the login from Service Provider, a user will be redirected to IDP Selection Page listing all IDPs configured for that account.
