Unjoin the domain and disable Active Directory single sign on

Unjoin the domain and disable Active Directory single sign on

You can remove the appliance from the Active Directory domain. Removing the appliance from the domain automatically disables single sign on as well.

1.
Go to the appliance Control Panel:
If the Organization component is enabled on the appliance, log in to the appliance System Administration Console, https://appliance_hostname/system, or select System in the drop-down list in the top-right corner of the page, then select Settings > Control Panel.
2.
Click Security Settings to display the Security Settings page.
3.
In the Single Sign On section, click Unjoin Domain.
NOTE: Users who are currently logged in to the User Console or Administrator Console remain logged in until their session ends. The next time they attempt to access the User Console or Administrator Console, however, they are required to enter their credentials.

Configure SAML for single sign on

Configure SAML for single sign on

You can configure the appliance to authenticate users without providing their credentials on the Welcome page using a third-party authentication tool.

Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) is an XML-based protocol that uses security tokens between identity and service providers. The security tokens contain assertion elements that provide information about the user's identity.

When SAML is enabled and configured on the appliance, and the user logs in using this single sign-on method, the appliance sends an authorization request to your Identity Provider (IdP). The identity provider then confirms the user's identity and sends an authentication response to the appliance. Next, the appliance logs the user in to the Administrator Console (or User Console) and establishes the user session. When a SAML user logs out of the appliance, they are logged out of their IdP account. If you want to continue to be logged into your IdP account after using the appliance, simply close the Administrator Console browser window without signing out. If a SAML user's session times out, and they are still logged into their IdP account, the appliance automatically starts a new session for that user.

If you have multiple organizations, you can configure SAML in each organization that uses this method of authentication, and keep the local login method for other organizations.

2.
Log in to the appliance Administrator Console, https://appliance_hostname/admin. Or, if the Show organization menu in admin header option is enabled in the appliance General Settings, select an organization in the drop-down list in the top-right corner of the page next to the login information.
3.
Go the SAML Settings page:
a.
On the left navigation bar, click Settings, then click SAML Configuration.
b.
On the SAML Settings page, under Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), select the Enable SAML Service Provider check box.
5.
In the Remote Identity Provider (IdP) Settings section, specify your IdP metadata to authenticate users by completing one of the following steps.
Recommended. If your IdP provides an URL to the XML page containing the IdP metadata (suggested option), click Get Metadata From IdP. In the IdP Metadata URL field that appears, type that URL, and click Import IdP Metadata.
To use your IdP metadata XML file, click Enter XML Metadata, and in the IdP Metadata XML field that appears, copy and paste the contents of the XML file. Then click Import IdP Metadata. The appliance parses the provided XML content and populates the settings required to establish a connection with the IdP.
The Remote Identity Provider (IdP) Settings section refreshes, showing the details of your IdP configuration. The listed options specify the appliance page redirects during SAML authentication. For more information, visit https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=security.
6.
In the IdP Attribute Mappings section, select the option that you want to use to grant the SAML user access to the appliance.
Use Local User Table: Relies on the user list stored locally on the appliance.
Use LDAP Lookup: Imports user information from an external LDAP server. For more information, see Using an LDAP server for user authentication.
Use SAML: Uses the values specified on this page to map to the fields used by your IdP to the appliance user records, such as name, email address, and so on. For example, if the IdP uses LDAP to authenticate users, you can set UID and Login to objectGUID and cn, respectively. For more information, see your IdP documentation.
7.
If you selected Use SAML, indicate if you want to create a new user on the appliance for authenticated SAML users that do not have accounts on the appliance. To do that, select Create new SMA user if authenticated SAML user does not exist on SMA.
8.
If you selected Use SAML, specify the roles that you want to grant to the SAML-authenticated user. Under Role Mapping, specify the conditions that you want to check when granting the roles.
For example, you can grant the Administrator role to the members of an LDAP group whose name contains a specific text string (such as admin), set the Administrator role as follows:
Administrator memberOf Contains admin
Role mapping is optional. If no matches are found, the appliance assigns the default role. To specify the default role, click Default Role for Unmatched Users, and choose a role from the available options, as applicable: Administrator, No Access, Read Only Administrator, or User Console Only.
9.
Optional. To view the appliance-specific SAML settings on the appliance, in the Local Service Provider (SP) Settings section, click View Metadata, and review the options that appear.
10.
Click Save.
c.
Open the Administrator Console or User Console Welcome page.
TIP: When SAML is enabled on the appliance, click Local Sign On, and specify your user credentials.
The Administrator Console or User Console page appears.

Example: Using Microsoft Active Directory in Azure as a SAML Identity Provider

Example: Using Microsoft Active Directory in Azure as a SAML Identity Provider

When you use Active Directory in Azure as a SAML Identity Provider (IdP), some additional steps are required. This topic describes the process of configuring SAML with Active Directory as an IdP.

b.
Log in to https://portal.azure.com and select Azure Active Directory.
c.
Under App Registrations, create a new registration, leaving the Redirect URI settings cleared.
d.
In the newly created App Registration, on the Endpoints page, copy the contents of the Federation metadata document field.
3.
Log in to the appliance Administrator Console, https://appliance_hostname/admin. Or, if the Show organization menu in admin header option is enabled in the appliance General Settings, select an organization in the drop-down list in the top-right corner of the page next to the login information.
4.
Go the SAML Settings page:
a.
On the left navigation bar, click Settings, then click SAML Configuration.
b.
On the SAML Settings page, under Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), select the Enable SAML Service Provider check box.
5.
In the Remote Identity Provider (IdP) Settings section, specify your IdP metadata to authenticate users by completing the following steps.
a.
Click Get Metadata From IdP.
b.
In the IdP Metadata URL field that appears, enter the contents from the Federation metadata document field that you recorded in 2.d, and click Import IdP Metadata.
The Remote Identity Provider (IdP) Settings section refreshes, showing the details of your IdP configuration. The listed options specify the appliance page redirects during SAML authentication. For more information, visit https://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=security.
6.
In the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) section, ensure the IdP Does Not Support Passive Authentication check box is selected.
7.
In the IdP Attribute Mappings section, select the option that you want to use to grant the SAML user access to the appliance.

Reviewing user sessions

Reviewing user sessions

The appliance keeps track of user sessions. You can review a list of the most recent sessions, or see all sessions for the appliance.

To allow the appliance to display the location associated with the logged-in user's public IP address, you must install a location database. See Install and configure the location database.

You can see all sessions on the Recent Sessions page. For a quick list of the latest sessions associated with your user account, use the My Recent Sessions pane. See View a list of user sessions.
