Configure TechSmith with SAML2 Provider Information

What is needed

The claim types that can be configured for use within Knowmia are the following:

  1. Email (required)
  2. User ID (required and must be globally unique in your IdP)
  3. First Name
  4. Last Name
  5. Display Name (recommended)

The claim types can vary, depending on what system you are using. These types might be xmlsoap schema, a defined name, or a urn:oid format. The most important part about the type is that you are defining in TechSmith's system the same format that is being sent from the IdP.

Click the Add Provider button. Choose SAML 2 from the dropdown list. You'll use your SAML endpoint as the SSO URL, and the login endpoint you created as the Sign In Endpoint URL. The signing certificate will be of the certificate installed IdP instance.

  1. Provider Name
  2. Issuer
  3. Assertion Consumer URL



Test the Integration

We typically like to get on a short call with your team to test the integration. This is usually a short call where you attempt to login to the application and confirm that the application recognizes your user successfully logs in. If there are any issues we will be able to check logs and work with you to help address any problems.
