SAML provider configuration

You must configure the following assertions to be sent to Structural from your SAML provider:

  • Email

  • GivenName

  • FamilyName

  • Groups

The Assertion Consumer Service (ACS) URL is https://your-tonic-url/api/sso/samllogin.

Structural configuration

In the Structural web server container, set the following Structural environment settings:


  • TONIC_SSO_SAML_IDP_METADATA_XML_URL- Set to the URL of your IDP Metadata XML file. If your SSO solution does not offer a URL, you can set TONIC_SSO_SAML_IDP_METADATA_XML_BASE64 to the Base 64 encoded contents of the IDP Metadata XML file. To encode the contents, run the following command: cat /path/to/xml/file | base64 -w 0

  • TONIC_SSO_SAML_ENTITY_ID: The entity ID to use to send SAML requests from Structural. If this is not set, the entity ID is determined from the IDP metadata. You also use this as the value of Audience in the SAML provider configuration.

  • TONIC_SSO_GROUP_FILTER_REGEX: Identifies the allowed SSO groups for Structural. For details, go to Synchronizing SSO groups with Tonic Structural.
