Liferay SAML Single Sign-On Integration

Connecting Liferay via SSO

The AssureBridge SAMLConnect™ service provides a powerful solution that will allow you to quickly, easily, and reliably enable single sign-on  (SSO) to or from a Liferay portal. We support both CE and EE of the Liferay product.

The AssureBridge Liferay SSO adapter is pre-integrated into the LifeRay portal and offers the following features:

  • Enables Liferay for inbound or outbound SSO connections using standards protocols such as SAML 1.1, SAML 2.0, OpenID or WS-Federation
    • SP-initiated Login
    • IDP-initiated Login
    • SP-initiated Logout
    • IDP-initiated Logout
  • Allows user profile information (e.g. email, nickname, job title) to be passed securely into the LifeRay database as part of the single sign-on experience
  • Allows Liferay user information to be synchronized with external systems
  • Supports a number of hooks to customize login and logout behavior
    • Custom IDP partner name provider for SP to map incoming requests to partner IDP. This is important for multi-tenant deployments where you Liferay instance is used to host sites for a number of customers with different partner IDP
    • Custom SP Attribute processor that allows to process SAML attributes coming from a particular partner IDP
    • Custom IDP Attribute mapper that allows Liferay IDP to map outgoing user attributes in a custom way for each partner SP application
    • Post login hook allows to call custom code after an SSO user is successfully logged into the Liferay portal
  • Allows to reload SSO adapter configuration at runtime without the need to restart the Liferay portal instance 

Integrators can save hundreds of hours of custom development work using the Liferay SSO adapter.  Integration and configuration is greatly simplified using:

  • Pre-integrated plugins that require zero coding
  • SSO connection support from AssureBridge professional technicians.
  • Automatic generation of Liferay configuration files assuring SSO connectivity is configured right the first time

With the AssureBridge Liferay adapter, your portal developers can concentrate on providing rich customer experiences rather that wrestling with the intricacies of complex single sign-on protocols.

    Do you have experience setting up Liferay with Saml 2 and ADFS 2. Is this a possible connection?

    Do you have experience to use this SAML SP plugin for Liferay to integrate it with WSO2 Identity Server (IS)? I’d like to evaluate it, but couldn’t find any documentation how to do it – I’m missing the Metadata URL, Assertation URL, and such for it.

      Our Liferay SSO Plugin communicates with External IDP services (like WSO2 server) via our On-Demand SAML 2.0 SP Service. We would configure the connection to the IDP via our service and provide the SP metadata. This is part of our fully managed service offering. You can contact us at info@assurebridge.com to set up a trial connection.
