Authenticating users with SAML
Hue supports SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) for Single Sign-on (SSO) authentication.
- User Agent - Browser that represents you, the user, seeking resources.
- Service Provider (SP) - Service (Hue) that sends authentication requests to SAML.
- Identity Provider (IdP) - SAML service that authenticates users.
The Service Provider (Hue) and the identity provider use a metadata file to confirm each other's identity. Hue stores metadata from the SAML server, and the identity provider stores metadata from the Hue server.
