# Plugin Settings

You may override the default plugin settings by creating a /config/saml-sp.php file.

View the settings you can override in your project at /vendor/flipboxfactory/saml-sp/src/models/Settings.php. Each setting has a description of what it does and how to customize it.

# EntityID

Currently you can edit the EntityID system wide a couple ways. Note that the value can be an environmental variable so that might be something to consider.

# 1. Add a config file in config/saml-sp.php.

This location lives right next to the general.php. Below is an example file contents.

return [
   'entityId' => 'https://my-entity-id',

# 2. Edit from the admin (Goto the plugin in craft, then click on the "Settings" menu item under the plugins sub nav).

Set the Entity ID there which will save it to the db

# Group Configuration/Group Assignment

# Group Attribute Name/Group Attribute Mapping

Many IdPs will send groups as an attribute within the SAML Response. When configured, the plugin use that attribute to automatically create (if needed) and assign the user properly. To achieve this, add a config/saml-sp.php then use the following configuration.

return [
    // change the value as needed
    'groupAttributeNames' => 'groups'

Make sure the value matches the attribute name sent from the IdP.

# Auto-Create Group

By default the plugin will create the group if the group attribute name is mapped correctly. You can turn this off if desired using autoCreateGroups.

return [
    'groupAttributeNames' => 'groups',
    // this will turn off the automatic creation of groups
    'autoCreateGroups' => false,

# Managing Permissions

Managing permissions ** is not supported ** automatically. There are a few options on how to manually manage permissions:

  1. Create the groups before the SAML Plugin creates them, then configure the permissions on the group. Know that the plugin will take the name of the group and camel case (refer to: \craft\helpers\StringHelper::camelCase) the name before saving it (or look up).
  2. Let the plugin create the groups, then add the needed permissions
  3. Use an event! See the EVENT_AFTER_RESPONSE_TO_USER example.
