Here is a step by step guide to manually download the Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) certificate and upload the same to the Replicon for a successful SAML 2.0 Set-up

Step 1 - Download the Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) Certificate
  • Open Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS)
  • Select Certificates from the left Menu as shown below

                       

  • Under "Token Signing" right click on the certificate that needs to be downloaded
  • Select View Certificate
  • In the Certificate window, click on details tab and then click on “Copy to file”.
  • In the certificate export wizard, click on next
  • Select the format as “DER encoded binary X.509 (.CER)” and click on next.
  • Enter a file name and then click on next and finish to save the certificate
Step 2 - Find the Post and Redirect URLs

There are two ways to find the Post and Redirect URL

  • From the ADFS server download the SAML metadata file by using the below URL after updating the hostname in it.
    https:///FederationMetadata/2007-06/FederationMetadata.xml
  • Open the metadata file using notepad++ or excel
  • Search and copy the Post and Redirect URLs into a notepad                                                                                                                                     OR
  • If the metadata file was previously  uploaded into Replicon then you can find the post and redirect URL using the “GetSAMLAuthenticationConfigurationDetails2” web service.
    Web service link:
    https:// [yourendpoint].replicon.com//services/SecurityService1.svc/help/GetSAMLAuthenticationConfigurationDetails2
Note: Update the endpoint and the companykey before using the above url to get the SAML authentication configuration details.

Step 3 - Manually upload the certificate into Replicon

  • To manually upload the certificate use the below URL after updating the end point and the company key in it 
    https:// [yourendpoint].replicon.com//services/SecurityService1.svc/help/EnableSAMLAuthentication2
  • Now copy and paste the post and redirect URL’s in the “ssoHTTPPostUrl”and “sloHTTPRedirectUrl” boxes as shown in the screenshot below.
                       

  • Click on the browse button and then select the certificate which we previously downloaded
  • Click on the submit button to upload the certificate.
