3. Click Configure Splunk to use SAML.

4. In the "SAML Groups" page, click New Group or click Edit link for a group you want to modify.

5. Provide a name for your group.

6. Determine the roles you want to assign to this group by moving the desired roles from the left column to the right column.

7. Click Save.
