SAML SSO with pre-authorized FortiGates

You can set up SAML SSO authentication in a Security Fabric environment by starting with a root FortiGate that has one or more pre-authorized FortiGates.

After the initial configuration, you can add more downstream FortiGates to the Security Fabric, and they are automatically configured with default values for a service provider.

To set up basic SAML SSO for the Security Fabric:
  1. Log in to the root FortiGate of the Security Fabric.
  2. Go to Security Fabric > Fabric Connectors and double-click the Security Fabric Setup card.
  3. Join two pre-authorized FortiGates to the root FortiGate (see Configuring the root FortiGate and downstream FortiGates).

  4. Configure the IdP (see Configuring the root FortiGate as the IdP).
  5. Configure the SPs (see Configuring a downstream FortiGate as an SP).
