4. Then, click on Non-gallery Application

5. Enter the name of the application (e.g. MDO-Prospecta) and click Add.

6. Select the SAML option to configure SAML-based authentication for the application. (This option requires that the application supports SAML 2.0.) The Setup Single Sign-On with SAML page appears.

  2. Get App Federation Metadata Url which is required to be entered into MDO settings (highly recommended).

  4. Go to Profile → Settings → SAML Configurations

  5. Add new SSO integration and enter the SAML information. Please note that you need only provide your SAML Url OR the SAML XML. You do not need to do both.

Congratulations! You have successfully set up SSO within your system.
