Audience: ClassLink Administrator
Launch the ClassLink IDP Console
After you login to the IDP Console, click on COPY EXISTING from the top of the navigation menu. This will present a list of pre-configured SAML connections.
COPY the Schoology template from the library
You will now see the Schoology SAML connector in your list of applications. Copy the IDP Metadata URL and provide that to your Schoology integration engineer. This is a unique URL for your district.
Schoology will use this URL to establish a trust with ClassLink. Once the trust is established, Schoology will provide a metadata URL. Launching this URL on a browser will display their metadata text. Copy this text. This information needs to be added in the metadata text field. To do this, click Edit.
While editing the Schoology SAML app, locate the Login URL field then input your LaunchPad custom login URL.
Not sure what your custom login URL is? The login page URL is located in the ClassLink Management Console under Settings>Login Page. See below.
Once you've completed updating the SAML settings, scroll down to save.
After your connection has been tested, you can deploy the link to your users. Click on the drop down next to the IDP Metadata URL and select Copy IDP Initiate Login URL. This is the URL you will deploy to your users from Assign Apps.
From the ClassLink Management Console, go to Add & Assign Apps, click new. Input the name of the Schoology app and complete the fields as shown below. Remember to turn on Single Sign-On, select SAML as the type, then paste the url.
The URL will look similar to the following.
