STEP 5: Attribute Mapping
- Attributes are user details that are stored in your Identity Provider
- Attribute Mapping helps you to get user attributes from your IdP and map them to WordPress user attributes like firstname, lastname etc.
- While auto registering the users in your WordPress site these attributes will automatically get mapped to your WordPress user details.
- In miniOrange SAML plugin, go to Attribute/RoleMapping tab and fill in all the fields.
||Name of the username attribute from IdP (Keep NameID by default)
||Name of the email attribute from IdP (Keep NameID by default)
||Name of the firstname attribute from IdP
||Name of the lastname attribute from IdP
||Name of the Role attribute from IdP
- You can check the Test Configuration Results to get a better idea of which values to map here.
STEP 6: Role mapping (It is Optional to fill this).
- WordPress uses a concept of Roles, designed to give the site owner the ability to control what users can and cannot do within the site.
- WordPress has six pre-defined roles: Super Admin, Administrator, Editor, Author, Contributor and Subscriber.
- Role mapping helps you to assign specific roles to users of a certain group in your IdP.
- While auto registering, the users are assigned roles based on the group they are mapped to.
STEP 7: Sign In Setting
- Go to Sign In Settings tab. Enable auto-redirect to IDP using Redirect to IdP if user not logged in option.
