The second piece of information is the certificate itself. To navigate to the certificate, first click View Details below the X.509 Certificate input.


Step Fourteen: The certificate information can be copied by clicking the clipboard icon next to the X.509 Certificate input. This information will be used in Step 17.


Step Fifteen: Login to Continu and select the Admin tab, then click Settings.


Step Sixteen: Within Settings, click on the Integrations tab, followed by the SAML integration.


Step Seventeen: Click on the Reconfigure SAML button, then paste the SAML 2.0 Endpoint information from Step 13 into the SAML 2.0 Endpoint input and paste the X.509 Certificate information from Step 14 into the X.509 Certificate input and click Submit.

Accepted Parameters

The following fields are acceptable to be passed through sso and will be saved each time a user logs in or is created via the SAML integration:

role - a lowercase string value accepted as “user” “admin” or “creator”.

hired - a string value representing a date in “MM-DD-YYYY” format.

image - a string value of a url representing a users profile image.

job_title - a string value representing a users job title.

location - a string value representing a users location with a hierarchy based on the | symbol. (If a location is passed that does not exist within the application, a new location will be created to accommodate it).

For Example - a value of “United States|California|San Francisco” would create 3 locations assuming they did not exist. Please Note: It is acceptable to have a single item (i.e. “California”) or 2 items as well (i.e. “California|San Francisco”).

department - A string value representing a users department with a hierarchy based on the | symbol. Please Note: This works the same way as location
