7.0 Configuring the Application for Access Manager on the Public Cloud

Access Manager provides a connector that simplifies the procedure for creating a SAML 2.0 federated connection between an on-premises Access Manager setup and a cloud-based Access Manager setup.

This connector helps you configure single sign-on (SSO) to the on-premises applications and cloud-based applications of an organization and provides seamless login experience to users.

Using this connector, you can configure an Access Manager Identity Server as a SAML 2.0 identity provider (IDP) by importing the SAML 2.0 metadata of another Access Manager Identity Server that will act as a service provider (SP).

NOTE:By default, this connector establishes the transient federation between two Access Manager setups. If needed, you can later change the type of federation by using Advanced Setup under Attributes on the application page.
