SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is an XML-based open standard format that exchanges authentication and authorization data between an identity provider, (the server that issues SAML assertions and performs authentication), and a service provider, (the web server from which you access information or services). MSS acts as the service provider.
See SAML Configuration Steps in the MSS Administrative Console documentation if you need further information.
Troubleshooting the configuration
If you have problems authenticating or see session timeout errors, see Troubleshooting SAML Setup in the MSS Administrator Guide.
Read the MSS documentation for an in-depth description of SAML authentication.
