SAML 2.0/OAUTH 2.0 Single Sign On integration with Alfresco community edition 5.2

Hi All,

I'm pretty new to Alfresco. Can you plese suggest whether Alfresco community edition does support SAML 2.0 (preferably) or OAUTH 2.0 Authorization for Single Sign On. If there is can I have any guidance documentation how to implement the same.

It would be of great help if Ive that insight.

Hi @achatterji,

Yes, Community 5.2 does support SAML - "SAML Single Sign On can be used for Alfresco Community Edition and Alfresco Office Services".

Mmmm, is this valid for 5.2 CE ?

I remember to use a custom addon for 5.2 only in Enterprise Edition, but not in CE.

Kind regards.

Hi,

I'm pretty new to Alfresco.  We've got primarily 2 options in Microsoft Authorization landscape.

1.SAML 2.0.

2. OAUTH 2.0.

Can anybody please guide me regarding Single Sign On integration with Alfresco. Is there any clear documentation how to implement either of the above mentioned authorization mechanism with steps. I'm looking for this desparetely. Appreciate your kind help.

Hi @EddieMay / @cesarista ,

In this document I can see SAML is supported for 5.2.0 version. I'm a bit confused. Can you please guide me through this.

Hi:

This is the compatibility matrix for Enterprise / Subscription-based Edition of ACS 5.2.

The Enterprise third party integrations such as SAML SSO does not apply to Community Edition. Also it happens with commercial databases (such as Oracle and MS-SQLServer).

Hi,

here's the official documentation starting point: https://docs.alfresco.com/community/concepts/auth-basics.html

It's the docs for the latest version of Alfresco CE, but I don't remember any changes from 5.2.

For SSO we usually use NTLM (old, vulnerable, not recommended) or Kerberos.

Hope this helps.

Leonardo.
