SAML Configuration

In SAML Configuration, you can configure connections to SAML identity providers (IdP), such as Azure Active Directory (AD). This allows end users to connect to FortiClient EMS and authenticate using their relevant credentials, such as to Azure AD.

To add a SAML configuration:
  1. In EMS, go to User Management > SAML Configuration.
  2. In the Name field, enter the desired name for this configuration.
  3. For Authorization Type, do one of the following:
    1. Select LDAP to associate a domain with this SAML configuration. From the Domain dropdown list, select the desired domain.
    2. Select None to not associate a domain with this SAML configuration. This is only recommended for non-domain endpoints.
  4. Configure Service Provider Settings. EMS is the service provider (SP):
