We were earlier struggling for SAML integration for one of our client. We tried different options before but could not work for them. Then I tried this extension developed by Mr. Sixto. Steps for Integration of SAML is followed as per instructions given in user guide. However for SAML integration one will definitely need assistance from the extension developer. The kind of support provided by Sixto is awesome. His response to my emails was very prompt and with detail instructions and guidance. With his great support we have successfully integrated SSO in our magento store. I recommend Mr. Sixto as SAML technological partner. All my good wishes for him and his fantastic product.

I recently got to use the SAML Single Sign-on Magento Extension on a huge project with a fortune 500 company, Varian Medical Systems based in CA. We implemented it on a mission critical project, the Varian Custom Marketplace. As the project manager with a large budget, I could have gone with any one solution, even a custom coded job. But we used this extension and the results couldn't have been better as the code is flawless. And the author provided some of he best technical support I have seen in years. You don't even have anything to consider... get this extension and save yourself a ton of problems and headaches. Billie M. (PrintTech Consulting)

People also ask

No, you only need to purchase license for production that you use in production.

Yes, the extension support multi-store. Each store will have its own SAML settings.

Take in mind that you will need a license for each of them.
SAML is a standard for exchanging authentication and authorization data between different domains.

Learn more at:
The extension includes a Readme that explains how to install and where to find the SAML settings panel.

This SAML setting panel contains different sections with a bunch of fields. All of them have a short description that explains what value to use on it.

The extension uses the Onelogin php-saml toolkit [1], so take a look at its settings if you have more doubts

This extension will work with any Identity Provider that follows the SAML 2.0 standard.

Take in mind that SP expects to receive the SAMLResponse using the HTTP-Post binding, and rest of the SAML messages are exchange using HTTP-Redirect binding.
If you have a complex project where you want to add SAML support, for sure you will need to buy this extension to save you the time of integrate Magento.

If you need custom solutions for specific apps, or you don't have much idea about SAML and are not able to configure the Identity Provider, you can contact me at and I can offer my help and agree rate per worked hour.
Yes, this extension works on Magento Community and Magento Enterprise

We have a B2B Magento site which we have multiple corporate clients who are using different SSO solutions. Can this extension multiple SSO solutions ?

We also have a need to support LDAP or Active Directory. Do you provide custom project support?

The SAML extension supports Multi-site so you can connect each shop with an Identity Provider (but notice there is license domain restriction).

If you want to connect 1 shop with more than 1 Identity Provider, then you will need to deploy also a simpleSAMLphp SAML bridge so:
Multiple IdPs --- SAML bridge -- Magento Service Provider.

My extension is only for the SAML standard, but if you need to be connected with an LDAP or Active directory, you can use those authentication sources and deploy an Identity Provider using simpleSAMLphp and connect it with the magento SAML extension.

I offer support for the extension (50$/hour), but for custom SSO projects I ask for 60$/hour.

Azure Active Directory supports the SAML 2.0 web browser single sign-on (SSO) profile.

You will be able to install and configure the SAML extension for Magento (enabling it as a SAML Service Provider), and then connect it with Azure, as explained here:

Thanks for the reply., I have a few questions:

1. Will the users from the Azure SSO be added into magneto’s database
2. If the team at my client’s side, delete’s a user, will it be automatically deleted from Magento?
3. If the team at my client’s side, ADD’s a user, will it be automatically added in Magento?
4. I want to assign particular user groups to some users, is that possible during the insertion of the users in magento?
5. Is it possible to arrange a one to one demo to know how the extension is working?
6. are you able to configure the extension for us?
Sixto Martin

  • Date: 2016-05-05 10:05:54
1. Yes if you enable at the settings the 'just-in-time" provisioning functionality.

2. No, but the user will not be able to access to the Magento since can't SSO anymore using Azure SSO.

3. No, this is not how SAML works, in SAML we are able to create users once they are authenticated on the Identity provider and try to access Magento, in this moment is created the account there.

4. Yes, group are supported on the plugin, there is a mapping section where you set what group from the Identity Provider will be assigned which what groups of Magento

5. Have you checked the video?

There I show you how it works and also I navigate showing the setting panel.
Also the settings/features are described here:

but if you still require a 1-1 demo we can schedule it,

6. Yes, I offer support for any change/customization/help with settings of the Magento extension. My rate is 50$/hour.
I don't offer specific support of the Azure SSO part since I'm not an expert on that and you should be able to contract a better candidate for that part.

In order to solve 2 and 3 you will need to use something like:

Admin ADFS login extension error
  • Date: 2016-04-22 02:04:45
Hi ,

I bought admin extension to use ADFS for Magento admin.
I got this error after install and trying to login from ADFS(federation) to Magento:

"The status code of the Response was not Success, was Requester -> urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:status:InvalidNameIDPolicy
Error at the ACS Endpoint.

Reason: The status code of the Response was not Success, was Requester -> urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:status:InvalidNameIDPolicy"

I am newer in working with ADFS, so can you please tell me what above message means and how to solve it?

Thank you so much
Sixto Martin
Sixto Martin
  • Date: 2016-04-22 02:04:29
ADFS expect an specific NameIDFotmat on the AuthNRequest sent by the Service Provider but is receiving a different value.

In the setting panel of the SAML Magento extension, at the advanced settings you will find the NameIdFormat value used, change it and use the same format that the ADFS (maybe transient?).

At this documentation you can learn more about ADFS:

I'm new with SAML. We are trying to create our corporation site with login function. When the user login to our corporation site, he could be redirected to Magento, which is located at another domain (or static IP). We want to use your single sign on extension. But no idea with how to create the login function on our corporation site which could act as idP.

View all replies.

Thanks a lot! We are thinking about using WordPress to create our corporation general web site. We found there is WordPress plugin 'WordPress SAML 2.0 IDP', developed by miniOrange. Do you think this idP plugin is compatible with your Magento extension?
Sixto Martin
Sixto Martin
  • Date: 2016-04-17 05:04:18
The SAML extension for Magento allows you to use any SAML 2.0-compliant Identity Provider.

So if the extension developed by miniOrange is SAML 2.0 compliant, it should work. but
I understand that miniOrange is a not a free service and you pay per user.

so as I already suggested, try to deploy simpleSAMLphp as IdP and use this wordpress authentication module: to use wordpress database as simpleSAMLphp IdP's authsources, then connect that IdP with the Magento's SAML extension.
And finally use to turn Wordpress as a Service Provider

If you interested you can contact directly to me and I implement that for you. (rate 50$/hour)

In order to connect simpleSAMLphp IdP and Magento you need to:

1. Access to simpleSAMLphp, "federation section" and click on the IdP, it will show the IdP metadata. You need to get some data: (EntityID, SSO URL, SLO URL, certificate)

2. Access Magento SAML extension panel,
2.1 Fill the "Identity Provider Setting" with the data you retrieved.
2.2 Configure the options that you need
2.3 Set the attribute mapping, based on the name of the attributes that the IdP provides (if you enabled simpleSAMLphp SP, you can access to the "authentication section" on simpleSAMLphp, execute an authentication test, and see what attributes the IdP povide.
2.4 At "advanced settings" on Magento extension, set as SP EntityID the value appears on "Status" and SP URL Metadata. (it is an URL with the Magento base URL + /sso/saml/metadata.

3. Access at the browser to the SP URL Metadata, See the source of the page and copy the XML.

4. At simpleSAMLphp, go to the "federation" section, click on the "convert metadata", paste the XML of the SP metadata, in order to convert it on simpleSAMLphp data.
Copy the result.

5. At simpleSAMLphp filesystem, edit metadata/saml20-sp-remote.php, and add the data that you generated on the conversor.

And that is all. Follow the guide step by step and you will have simpleSAMLphp and Magento connected.

If you are not able, I offer support (50$ / h) and can guide you in a web-conference).

Custom login page
  • Date: 2016-03-21 10:03:41
Hi Cmsmart,

I am interesting in this extension. Anyway, I have 1 question:
From your demo video, There is a link on login page (linked to IP).
Can we allow customer to enter user and password on Magento login page instead of doing it on external website? I mean user go to Magento login page, enter username and password (IP credentials, not Magento credentials) and we login that customer automatically instead of go to another website.

Looking forward for your response
Sixto Martin

  • Date: 2016-03-21 11:03:39
This is not like SAML work.

In the SAML SSO workflow credentials are provided to the Identity Provider login form, not to the Service Provider so that external link is a must (if you want to keep normal login).

Please, to understand the SAML protocol visit:

If you plan to disable Magneto's normal login and force always the SAML authentication, then you don't need that link and instead we can redirect always the user to the Identity Provider login form when the user access to Magento.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for your response.
We need to be able to fully customize the login page
So Can we customize the login page even it is not Magento page?
You can refer to another extension:
That extension comes with customized login page.
