      and click
      Next
      .
    6. In the
      Specify Display Name
      page, enter the name for the first relying party (one of the Prisma Access gateways or portals) and click
      Next
      .
      This example specifies one of the cloud
      Gateways
      from Prisma Access as a relying party.
    7. In the
      Configure URL
      page, enter the SAML single sign-on URL for the gateway; then click
      Next
      .
      The URL is in the format
      https://
      <gateway-hostname>
      :443/SAML20/SP/ACS
      , where
      <gateway-hostname>
      is the name of the Prisma Access gateway you are configuring as a relying party trust.
    8. In the
      Configure Identifiers
      page, enter the relying party trust identifier for the gateway; then click
      Next
      .
      The relying party trust identifier URL is in the format
      https://
      <gateway-hostname>
      :443/SAML20/SP
      , where
      <gateway-hostname>
      is the name of the Prisma Access gateway you are configuring as a relying party trust.
    9. In the
      Choose Access Control Policy
      page, leave the
      Policy
      as
      Permit everyone
      and click
      Next
      .
    10. Click
      Finish
      .
      ADFS adds a new
      Relying Party Trusts
      entry.

    1. In the
      Relying Party Trusts
      page, find the gateway you just added in the selections on the right, then select
      Edit Claim Issuance Policy
      .

      SAML-Account-Name
      and an
      Outgoing Claim Type
      of
      Name ID
      .
      By default, the Prisma Access portal and gateways expect to see the
      username
      attribute in the SAML response from the Identity Provider (IdP).
    5. Click
      Apply
      then click
      OK
      .
      The gateway displays in the list of
      Relying Party Trusts

      Use the instructions on the Microsoft website to add the certificate.
  5. Add all the gateways and portals in Prisma Access as Relying Party Trusts by completing Step 2 and Step 3 for the remaining Prisma Access portals and gateways.
