To enable SAML in Forge:

  1. Enter your SAML metadata URL in the template. If Forge has already been deployed, spin down to 0 and and back up to 1 node to create a new node with the SAML configuration.
  2. Edit /home/forge/atl-cfn-forge/permissions.json on the node to add your groups, and configure their permissions. This file is provided for example only - you can use any groupname in your directory.

<Attribute Name="User.Email" NameFormat="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:attrname-format:basic">

Example SAML response for a group:

<Attribute Name="memberOf" NameFormat="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:attrname-format:basic">

The SAML response should also contain the following:
