Subdirectories – Network 1: mydomain.com/abc, Network 2: mydomain.com/xyz
How miniOrange SAML 2.0 Single Sign-On Plugin works with Multinetwork
Without Multinetwork support, you have to configure the WordPress SAML 2.0 Single Sign-On Plugin on each subsite separately, add IdP configuration on each subsite individually and add Service Provider configuration for each subsite in the IdP.
For Example -
If you have a Multinetwork-setup of 3 networks with 3 subsites in each network, you will need to do the configuration just once on SP and IdP instead of 9 times on SP (on each subsite) and 9 times on Identity Provider (one SP for each subsite).
Benefits of Multi-Network Plugin:
- 1. If the number of subsites or networks keeps growing, for example, you are a vendor and need to create a network for each of your clients, choosing this option will save you from configuring and enabling SSO each time you create a new subsite/network.
- 2. Provides role based access to each subsite of all the networks based on the roles defined in your Identity Provider. You can give access to people for certain subsites while keeping other subsites inaccessible to them. For example, if you are an educational institution and want to restrict some of the subsites/network to your faculty members only, this plugin will allow you to configure role mapping for each site individually.
