SAML Metadata Export from an Authentication Profile
- Device > Authentication Profile
The firewall and Panorama can use a SAML identity provider (IdP) to authenticateusers who request services. For administrators, the service can be access to the web interface. For end users, the service can be Captive Portal or GlobalProtect, which enable access to your network resources. To enable SAML authentication for a service, you must register that service by entering specific information about it on the IdP in the form of SAML metadata. The firewall and Panorama simplify registration by automatically generating a SAML metadata file based on the authentication profile that you assigned to the service and you can export this metadata file to the IdP. Exporting the metadata is an easier alternative to typing the values for each metadata field in the IdP.
Some of the metadata in the exported file derives from the SAML IdP server profile assigned to the authentication profile (Device > Server Profiles > SAML Identity Provider). However, the exported file always specifies POST as the HTTP binding method, regardless of the method specified in the SAML IdP server profile. The IdP will use the POST method to send SAML messages to the firewall or Panorama.
To export SAML metadata from an authentication profile, click the SAML Metadata link in the Authentication column and complete the following fields. To import the metadata file into an IdP, refer to your IdP documentation.
SAML Metadata Export Settings
Select the service for which you want to export SAML metadata:
Your selection determines which other fields the dialog displays.
[Management | Captive Portal | GlobalProtect] Auth Profile
Enter the name of the authentication profile from which you are exporting metadata. The default value is the profile from which you opened the dialog by clicking the Metadata link.
Select an option for specifying an interface that is enabled for management traffic (such as the MGT interface):
[Captive Portal | GlobalProtect] Virtual System
(Captive Portal or GlobalProtect only)
Select the virtual system for which the Captive Portal settings or GlobalProtect portal are defined.
(Captive Portal or GlobalProtect only)
Enter the IP address or hostname of the service.
If you enter a hostname, the DNS server must have an address (A) record that maps to the IP address.
