SAML is an open standard for exchanging authentication and authorization data between parties, in particular, between an identity provider and a service provider.
ServiceProvider (SP) = Prisma Cloud Console UI
IdentityProvider (IdP) = SiteMinder, ADFS, Okta, AzureAD, PING Federate, Shibboleth, etc.
SAML Federation is based upon HTTP redirections.
This is used for browser based applications such as the Prisma Cloud Console’s UI.
In this article, we outline example SAML authentication requests and SAML responses, giving in detail explanation on what to look for in each. The aim is to help provide a guideline for troubleshooting SAML related issues with Prisma Cloud.
