-- SUMMARY --
A refactored version of the simplesamlphp_auth module. This version accepts more than one idP and provides a seemly deep linking integration. The simplesamlphp_auth module makes it possible for Drupal to support SAML for authentication of users. The module will auto-provision user accounts into Drupal if you want it to. It can also dynamically assign Drupal roles based on identity attribute values.
-- PREREQUISITES --
You must have SimpleSAMLphp installed and configured as a working service point (SP) as the module uses your local SimpleSAMLphp SP for the SAML support. For more information on installing and configuring SimpleSAMLphp as an SP visit: http://www.simplesamlphp.org.
IMPORTANT: Your SP must be configured to use something other than phpsession for session storage (in config/config.php set store.type => 'memcache' or 'sql').
To use memcache session handling you must have memcached installed on your server and PHP must have the memcache extension. For more information on installing the memcache extension for PHP visit: http://www.php.net/manual/en/memcache.installation.php
If you are on a shared host or a machine that you cannot install memcache on then consider using the sql handler (store.type => 'sql').
-- INSTALLATION --
Assuming the prerequisites have been met, installation of this module is just like any other Drupal module.
- Download the module
- Uncompress it
- Move it to the appropriate modules directory (usually, sites/all/modules)
- Go to the Drupal module administration page for your site
- Enable the module
- Configure the module (see below)
-- CONFIGURATION --
The configuration of the module is fairly straight forward. You will need to know the names of the attributes that your SP will be making available to the module in order to map them into Drupal.
-- TROUBLESHOOTING --
The most common reason for things not working is the SP session storage type is still set to phpsession.
