Optional configurations 

This section has instructions for configuring several optional SAML features.

Configure SP-initiated login

This configuration enables a Sumo user to initiate login from the Sumo Logic web app. Sumo redirects the user to OneLogin with a SAML AuthnRequest with the  information that OneLogin needs to authenticate the user. OneLogin replies to Sumo with a SAML Assertion (SAMLResponse). 

  1. LoginPath. Enter a unique identifier for your org. You can specify any alphanumeric string (with no embedded spaces), provided that it is unique to your org. (You can't configure a Login Path that another Sumo customer has already configured). The identifier is used to generate a unique URL for user login. For example, you could enter yourcompanyname.
  2. Authn Request URL. Enter the SAML 2.0 Endpoint URL that you copied from the OneLogin SSO page, as described above
  3. Disable Requested Authentication Context. (Optional). Leave unchecked.
  4. Sign Authn Request. (Optional). Leave unchecked.

Configure on-demand account provisioning

If you configure on-demand account provisioning, Sumo Logic automatically creates a user account the first time a user tries to access Sumo Logic from your OneLogin portal page. To configure this behavior, you update your OneLogin integration in Sumo Logic, providing the First Name and Last Name attributes One Login uses to identify users, and the role or roles you want to assign to the accounts when they are created.

In Sumo Logic, open your OneLogin integration application for editing.

  1. Click the On Demand Provisioning checkbox.
  2. First Name. Enter: 
    First Name 
  3. Last Name. Enter:
    Last Name 
  4. On Demand Provisioning Roles. Specify the Sumo RBAC roles you want to assign when user accounts are provisioned. (The roles must already exist in Sumo Logic.)
  5. Click Save to save the SAML configuration.

Configure on-demand role provisioning

If you configure on-demand role provisioning, Sumo Logic assigns roles to a user every time the user logs in. Roles are configured by your OneLogin administrator and assigned as part of the SAML assertion. Each role name that you want to assign to users must match roles that exist in Sumo Logic and in OneLogin.

  1. In Sumo Logic, open your OneLogin integration application for editing.
  2. Click the Roles Attribute checkbox. The Roles Attribute field appears.
  3. Roles Attribute. Enter:
  4. Click Save
