This sample is a demonstration on how to configure SAML2 SSO using a sample service provider.
Configuring the web app
Check out the source from the repository location which contains the samples.
<HOME>/sso/SSOAgentSamplein the checked out folder and build the sample with following command.
- After successfully building the sample, a .war file named
travelocity.comcan be found inside the
Deploy this sample web app on a web container. To do this, use the Apache Tomcat server.
Since this sample is written based on Servlet 3.0 it needs to be deployed on Tomcat 7.x.

- Stop the Apache Tomcat server if it is already running.
- Copy the
travelocity.warfile to the
- Start the Apache Tomcat server.
travelocity.properties file, which is found inside the
travelocity.com/WEB-INF/classes folder, can be used to change the properties like

- A unique identifier for this SAML 2.0 Service Provider application:
- The URL of the SAML 2.0 Assertion Consumer:

Now that the web app is successfully deployed on a web container; the next step is to configure WSO2 Identity Server as the identity provider.

- Login to management console using default administrator credentials (the username and password are both "admin").
- In the management console found on the left of your screen, navigate to Main > Manage > SAML SSO.

- Enable Signature Validation in Authentication Requests and Logout Requests: Set this as true (Certificate alias = wso2carbon)
- Enable Single Logout: Set this as true by selecting the checkbox
- After providing above values click Register.
After successfully registering the service provider, logout from management console. You have now configuring Identity Server as the identity provider. The next step is to run the sample.
