Accessing Zoho via OneLogin using SAML

Accessing Zoho via OneLogin using SAML

OneLogin uses IAM to secure user access to applications and devices and increases end-user productivity through SSO. You must obtain the login URL, logout URL, and the certificate from OneLogin. You can do this in two ways: Either use the SAML Test Connector, or choose Zoho from the Company Apps list.

Using the SAML Test Connector

  1. Log in to OneLogin.
  2. Click Administration in the top-right corner.
  3. Hover on Apps in the top navigation bar and click Add Apps.
  4. Search for 'SAML Test Connector'.
  5. Choose SAML Test Connector (IdP w/attr).

  6. Enter a display name. You also have an option to upload a logo.
  7. Click Save in the top-right corner.
  8. Go to the SSO tab. The login URL will be displayed as SAML 2.0 Endpoint (HTTP) and the logout URL will be displayed as SLO Endpoint (HTTP).
  9. You can download the X.509 certificate by clicking View Details.
  10. Configure Single Sign-On URL and Entity ID URLs at Zoho.
  11. Navigate to the Configuration tab.

  12. Enter the Zoho service URL that you want your users to go after authorization in the RelayState text-box.

  7. Navigate to the SSO tab. The login URL is displayed as SAML 2.0 Endpoint (HTTP) and the logout URL is displayed as SLO Endpoint (HTTP).
  8. You can download the X.509 certificate by clicking View Details. Make sure the certificate is in one of these formats: based-64 coded .cer, .crt, .cert, or .pem file.
  9. Configure Single Sign-On URL and Entity ID URLs at Zoho.
  10. Navigate to the Configuration tab.

  11. Enter your domain name or ZOID.
