You need to configure your vCloud Air environment with the IdP metadata. The IdP metadata must include the location of the SSO service, the single logout service, and the service's X.509 certificate.

For example, if you are using ADFS as your IdP, you can obtain metadata from: https://<ADFS-host>/FederationMetadata/2007-06/FederationMetadata.xml.

1

Login to your local vCloud Air Org login URL (for example, https://tW-vcd.vchs.vmware.com/cloud/org/demo-vdc/login.jsp) with Organization Administrator credentials.

2

Click Settings > Federation under the Administration tab:

a

Set Entity ID. The entity ID uniquely identifies your SP. You can use any string, such as, com.xyz.instance1 or an org name, and so on.

b

Select the Use SAML Identity Provider checkbox.

c

Upload or paste the metadata in the Metadata XML field.

Note

Ensure that IDP metadata has HTTP-redirect binding as the first SAML binding and then replace the IdP metadata XML.

3

Click Apply.
