Custom SAML applications

If you’d like to add applications that aren’t in our catalog or aren't publicly available, you can use the Custom SAML application.

With Privileged Access Service, you can choose single-sign-on (SSO) access to your Custom SAML web application with IdP-initiated SAML SSO (for SSO access through the Admin Portal) or SP-initiated SAML SSO (for SSO access directly through the Custom SAML web application) or both. Providing both methods gives you and your users maximum flexibility.

These instructions describe the steps for using the Custom SAML application template to configure and deploy your application. They show how to create a custom application profile to a web application that uses SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) for authentication. Refer to SAML application scripting for more information about writing the scripts in this template.

Note:   To use the Custom SAML application template, it is highly recommended that you first understand the basics of SAML and JavaScript. You will have to provide required SAML information to the web application’s service provider, as well as possibly modify a script in JavaScript to specify a SAML assertion for each user log-on with the web application. Also see Introduction to application management for a description of the SAML workflow.
