SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) is a protocol used for single sign-on (SSO) authentication. Enabling SAML SSO allows users to authenticate into different applications and services with just one set of login credentials. This article goes over a general approach to set up SAML SSO with a variety of Identity Service Providers.

1. Create a new app in your Google Admin Console

  1. Go to Apps / Web and mobile apps

  2. Click add app

  3. Select "Add custom SAML app"

2. Add IdP Metadata and SSO URL to Current

  1. Download IdP Metadata

  2. Copy the SSO URL

  3. Go to Current / Settings / Security

  4. Enable SSO

  5. Add the URL and Metadata.xml

3. Add service provider details

  1. ACS URL: https://api.current.so/auth/sso

  2. Entity ID: https://api.current.so/auth/sso/metadata

  3. Ensure Signed response is checked

  4. Name ID format: EMAIL

  5. Name ID: Basic Information > Primary Email

4. Add attribute mappings

Primary email: email

First name: firstName

Last name: lastName

  1. Test sign in

Sign out of Current and test logging in using SAML SSO instead of your email or the "Sign in with Google" option.

Note: It may take Google several minutes to propagate the changes. If the first attempt gives you an error, please wait a few minutes and try again. More details
