Configure single sign-on with SAML

You can configure Splunk software to use SAML authentication for single sign-on (SSO), using information provided by your supported identity provider (IdP).

Caution: Before you attempt to configure SSO in Splunk Cloud, contact Splunk Support and open a ticket requesting them to prepare your cloud deployment for SSO. When they have configured your deployment, they will notify you and provide the certificate required.

Prerequisites

  • An identity provider configured to provide the role, realName, and mail attributes. The supported identity providers are:
    • Ping Identity
    • Okta
    • Azure AD
    • AD FS
  • An admin role with the change_authentication capability. This permission level lets you enable SAML and edit authentication settings on the Splunk search head.
