I made a wordpress for internal professional buisness. I'm looking to use SSO to accept users from my company in my wordpress forums. I'm just looking a way to use SSO sAML in order to create accounts.

Is something like this is possible ? Is there any addons ? Any feedbacks ?

Thanks a lot.


I am assuming you already have a working SAML IdP. If so then it is a matter of configuring the SP (Service Provider). Once those two criteria are set it is just a matter of figuring out the best plugin that meets your requirements:

1) custom plugin: Does exactly what you need but you need to develop it.

2) public plugins: There are a variety of them out there. Make sure to find one that does what you need. In your case provisioning. I am not going to recommend any specific one. But you will find a list of them here - https://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/saml

  • We use Shibboleth at my Enterprise. I wrote multiple custom (Shibboleth) plugins. I also wrote one simplesamlphp plugin, handed the code over to Pantheon, and one of their developers re-coded it to their standards. – user42826 Jan 30 '17 at 23:40
