Who can use this feature?
|Setup SAML SSO
Setting up SAML SSO
Open SSO in Beamo
The SSO configuration is located in the Settings of Beamo.
- Beamo → Settings → Security
Click “Enable SAML SSO” to start the process.
Create a SAML app in Google
Note: Providers’ configuration instructions are outlined here. For more detailed configuration instructions, please contact the respective ID provider.
- Open the Google Workspace Admin console and navigate to Apps → Web and mobile.
- Select Add App → Add custom SAML app.
- Give the application a Display name, e.g. Beamo on the App details screen and click Continue.
- The screen Google Identity Provider Details opens.
This information is required at a later step. Take note of and click Continue:
- SSO URL
- Entity ID
- The next screen Service Provider Details opens.
Manually configure the fields.
Set this field to the pre-generated Assertion Consumer Service (ACS) URL retrieved from the Beamo SSO configuration screen.
Set this field to the pre-generated SP Entity ID retrieved from the Beamo SSO Configuration screen.
(Optional) Set this field to the login URL from which users will access Beamo.
Check this box if you want the Workspace to sign SAML responses. If not checked, the Workspace will sign only the SAML assertion.
The default Name ID is the primary email.
Select Add Mapping and create the following mapping if not already existing:
|Google Directory Attribute
Turn on the app
Go to the section User Access on the SAML app and set it to ON for everyone or for specific groups.
Continue on to Beamo
The Google Workspace Admin-specific configurations are done. Continue on to Beamo to finish the configuration.
Service Provider Configuration defines the format of SAML requests.
Identity Provider Configuration defines the format to expect for SAML responses.
Service Provider Configuration
Configure the following fields according to the choices selected in the Google Workspace Admin console during setup:
Want Assertions Signed
Condition where Beamo expects SAML assertions to be signed. By default, SAML Apps will sign SAML assertions, so you may check this box.
Check this box when using trusted and valid certificates from your IdP through a trusted CA.
Identity Provider details
Identity Provider Configuration will often require you to refer back to the Google Workspace Admin console to retrieve application values:
Enter the Entity ID retrieved from the Google Identity Provider details section.
Single Sign On Service URL
Set this field to Google Workspace's SSO URL retrieved from the Google Identity Provider details section.
Single Log Out URL
Login with SSO currently does not support SLO. This option is planned for future development, but you may pre-configure it if you wish.
X509 Public Certificate
Paste the retrieved Certificate, removing -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- and -----END CERTIFICATE-----.
Extra spaces, carriage returns, and other extraneous characters will cause certification validation to fail.
Specify the email domains which are allowed to authenticate with SAML SSO. Add one domain per field. If the users log in with email@example.com, the domain to be entered is example.com.
Test & Save
After the tests are successful, [Save] the configuration, and SSO will be enabled.
