Single Sign-On with an IdP

BlueSnap's support for single sign-on (SSO) lets users sign into their BlueSnap accounts with one set of credentials, removing the hassle out of logging in. BlueSnap supports Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), enabling you to go through your preferred Identity Provider (IdP) to authenticate with BlueSnap. Login security is greatly improved since users don't need to create and store another password, and since you can utilize password policies and two-factor authentication configured through the IdP.

Note: If you'd like to set up SSO with an IdP not covered on this page, please work with your Implementation Specialist or contact Merchant Support.

  4. In this step, you will prepare the following configuration, using the data from the XML file.

referer.hostname = {your data here}
provider = okta
onelogin.saml2.strict = true
onelogin.saml2.debug = false
onelogin.saml2.idp.entityid = {your data here}
onelogin.saml2.idp.single_sign_on_service.url = {your data here}
onelogin.saml2.idp.x509cert = {your data here}
onelogin.saml2.security.nameid_encrypted = false
onelogin.saml2.security.authnrequest_signed = false
onelogin.saml2.security.want_messages_signed = false
onelogin.saml2.security.want_assertions_signed = false
onelogin.saml2.security.want_assertions_encrypted = false
onelogin.saml2.security.want_nameid_encrypted = false
onelogin.saml2.security.want_xml_validation = true

You will need to modify the following on your configuration file.

  • referrer.hostname - Replace {your data here} with your hostname. For example: dev-bls.okta.com.

  • onelogin.saml2.idp.entityid - Replace {your data here} with the value of the entityID attribute in the XML file (shown below).

  • onelogin.saml2.idp.single_sign_on_service.url - Replace {your data here} with the value of the Location attribute of md:SingleSignOnService in the XML file (shown below).

  • onelogin.saml2.idp.x509cert - Replace {your data here} with the value of the ds:X509Certificate element in the XML file (shown below).

Data needed from the XML file

Note: Once you've prepared the configuration, set it aside for now. You will need to provide it to BlueSnap in later steps.

  1. In the General tab, copy the URL provided in the Application Embed Link section. You will need to embed this link in your app so logged-in users can access their BlueSnap account.

  2. Now, assign users to the application so they can have SSO access to their BlueSnap accounts (via the link from the previous step). Click the Assignment tab and complete the steps in the UI.

    Note: In the Username field, make sure to enter their BlueSnap account username.
