  • Is Passive - Can allow authentication methods that do not show the user any input
  • SSO Binding - The binding needed for the SSO connection
  • SLO Binding - The binding needed for the SLO connection
  • Metadata expiration in seconds - We cache the metadata to speed up the site loading process
  • Sign SP Metadata - Weather to sign the Service Provider metadata or not
  • Ignore SSO - No session will be stored, if the magento session expires, a IDP login screen reappears
  • Certificate Data (CRT): The X.509 Certificate used to communicate with the SAML2 IDP server (preshared)

Setup step 7: Enabling the IDP in the proper store / website

  • Go to Stores -> Configuration
  • In the left bar, find Wizkunde Configuration and click on it.
  • Select the right scope of your website / store to make sure you enable the IDP where you want to enable it.
  • Adjust the settings according to your situation

Configuration: General Settings


  • Enable SSO in frontend: Enable SSO for your end customers
  • Enable SSO in backend: Enable SSO for your administrative users
  • Frontend Server: The server that we're using to connect to the frontend
  • Backend Server: The server that we're using to connect to the backend
  • CMS Page for failed login: The page that will be shown when a login cannot be completed

Configuration: Frontend Firewall


  • Immediate login in frontend: If set to yes, the user will not see the Magento site before logging in, it will be immediatly redirected to the IDP instead of after clicking on "login". Very useful for B2B sites that only expose data to registered customers

  • CMS Whitelist: The pages which are allowed to be shown without logging in

  • IP Whitelist: The IP's which may access the frontend without facing the SSO login enforcement

Configuration: Audit Logging


  • Logging: Enable logging for this storeview
