SAML Authentication

When to use SAML

By integrating FotoWeb with your SAML authentication service, you can import users into a preset FotoWeb group or groups. Because SAML does not support synchronization of group data, you will need to create groups in FotoWeb and then assign users imported from the SAML service to those groups.

SAML authentication is fit for:

  • Customers who already have a SAML identity provider and wish to integrate FotoWeb with this provider.
  • Customers who use Active Directory Federation Services.
  • Customers who have an Active Directory and wish to use FotoWeb with SSO. In this case you can use SAML in combination with Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) to facilitate single sign-on usage scenarios.
