Connect to IU Login with the SAML protocol

On this page:


Before you begin

IU Login is compliant with SAML 2.0, and uses Shibboleth IdP for SAML authentication. To learn more about Shibboleth, see What's Shibboleth? and How Shibboleth Works: Basic Concepts.

You'll need to understand your role as a Service Owner and the role of the Service Provider you will be sponsoring:

  • Service Owner: The department and individuals within Indiana University that are sponsoring the Shibboleth service account being requested. Service Owners are responsible for facilitating all communications and updates from the Service Provider to the Identity Management Systems (IMS) team. Every Service Provider must have a sponsoring department and contacts.
  • Service Provider: The organization that is providing a service to users who have identities established at IU. This organization can be inside or outside IU, but it must have an IU sponsor.

Connect your service

After familiarizing yourself with these roles, to connect your service to IU Login 2.0:

  1. Working with the Service Provider, complete the SAML Integration Request form.
  2. Agree to fulfill the responsibilities and duties of a Service Owner for the referenced Service Provider by submitting the form.
