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.

The SameSite flag must be adjusted when using SAML behind a load balancer. See Setting the SameSite Attribute.

Troubleshooting the configuration

If you have problems authenticating or see session timeout errors, see Troubleshooting SAML Setup in the MSS Administrator Guide.
