I’ve spent almost a day trying to configure SAML with no luck… I always end with:
SAML configuration error
Something went wrong while retrieving the SAML configuration, please check your settings.`
It’s probably a stupid mistake or something that I’m not aware off. Below is my authc config section:
authc: saml_auth_domain: enabled: true order: 1 http_authenticator: type: saml challenge: true config: idp: metadata_url: https://xxxxxxx.xx.com/idp/xxxx entity_id: https://xxxx.xx.com/idp/xxxx sp: entity_id: elastic_xxxx kibana_url: http://kibana-server.subdomain.com:5601/ roles_key: Role exchange_key: 'weewqrtyytruyiooiuasdsadsdkfjhasdhfoaiw...' authentication_backend: type: noop basic_internal_auth_domain: http_enabled: true transport_enabled: true order: 0 http_authenticator: type: basic challenge: false authentication_backend: type: intern
If someone could help or point me how could I enable any sort of debugging it would really appreciate it. I already tried to change the log level to debug but sadly this doesn’t show my anything more.
I’m not quite sure why as I wasn’t able to find any errors in the logs but
metadata_url was a no go for me. I’ve changed that to
metadata_file put the metadata file in the appropriate config directory - that appropriate word is crucial as if you put it in a different one you won’t get an error in the logs. Just the usual SAML configuration error.
Fixed the missing
InResponseTo tag in the SAMLResponse and voila it works like a charm
