Enable SAML on the Edge UI

Edge for Private Cloud v4.18.01

After installing the Edge SSO module, you have to configure the Edge UI to supports SAML. The Edge UI is typically installed on the same node as the Edge Management Server, meaning it s on the same node as apigee-sso.

After you enable SAML on the Edge UI, the Edge UI uses OAuth to connect to the Management Server. You do not have to worry about expiring OAuth tokens between the Edge UI and the Edge Management Server. Expired tokens are automatically refreshed.

You must create a config file to configure the Edge UI:


# Comma separated list of URLs for the Edge UI, 
# in the format:  http_or_https://IP_or_hostname_of_UI:9000. 
# You can have multiple URLs when you have multiple installations
# of the Edge UI or you have multiple data centers. 

# Publicly accessible URLs for Edge UI.

# Required variables
# Default is "n" to disable SAML support.

# Information about apigee-sso.
# Externally accessible IP or DNS of apigee-sso.
# Default is http. Set to https if you enabled TLS on apigee-sso.

# SSO admin credentials as set when you installed apigee-sso.

# The name of the OAuth client used to connect to apigee-sso. 
# The default client name is edgeui.
# Oauth client password using uppercase, lowercase, number, and special chars. 

# If set, the existing EDGEUI client is deleted and new one is created.
# The default value is "n".
# Set to "y" when you configure SAML and change the value of 
# any of the EDGEUI_* properties.

To configure the Edge UI to enable SAML support:

  1. Run the following command:
    > /opt/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-service edge-ui configure-sso -f configFile

To later change these values, update the config file and run the command again.
