  • On the details tab, uncheck "Allow Password Sign In", if you want your users to only be able to log in via SAML.

  • Check "Allow Creation of New Users (JIT Provisioning)" if you want to auto create new users.

  • In "Idp Entity ID" field, enter the value from "Issuer (IDP Entity ID)" in the step 1.10 above.

  • In "IdP Single Sign-On Service URL" field, enter the value from "Sign-in Page URL" in the step 1.10 above.

  • In "Email attribute name", input "email".
