About this course

Overview

This course will guide the student through a Docker-based deployment of Alfresco Content Services, SAML SSO for Alfresco Content Services and LemonLDAP::NG using SAML.

We will start with a pre-configured Docker Compose environment, continue with the configuration of the Identity and Service Providers and end with the validation of the configured functionality.

We are using LemonLDAP::NG as a test Identity Provider which can be used to quickly and independently configure and validate SAML SSO for Alfresco Content Services.

N.B. this course is specifically focused on the SAML SSO for Alfresco Content Services module and does not make use of the Alfresco Identity Service. See the Alfresco SSO Guide for further information on this approach.

What Will I Learn?

At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Configure a SAML Identity Provider (LemonLDAP::NG)
  • Install SAML SSO for Alfresco Content Services (ACS)
  • Configure the SAML Service Providers (Share, REST API & AOS)
