Using SAML SSO with Alfresco Outlook Integration

Use this information to set up SAML Single Sign-On (SSO) for Alfresco Content Services authentication with Alfresco Outlook Integration.
Note: If you install the Outlook client manually without specifying the SAML authentication type, you won't be able to see or select the SAML option.

Once you've installed the Outlook client and completed the configuration, you should see the SAML authentication radio button in the Outlook plugin configuration. To see this option, open Microsoft Outlook, and in the Alfresco Client tab select Configure to view the client configuration

Additional steps needed when using AD FS with SAML SSO and Outlook

Note: The following steps assume you've already configured your Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) identity provider (IdP)
When AD FS is used to authenticate Alfresco Outlook Integration, you'll need to check the following settings in the IDP server:
  1. Log in to AD FS as the administrator, and go to Authentication Policies.
  2. Select Edit Global Authentication Policy.
  3. In the Intranet tab, click the check box next to Forms Authentication.
This avoids the display of a "white page" in the login page.
