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 Adobe Creative Cloud template from the library.
You will now see the Adobe SAML connector in your list of applications (Dashboard).
Locate Adobe, there are 2 URLs that need to be pasted into the Adobe Admin Console settings.
See screenshot below.
Item #1 is Adobe's IdP issuer URL (metadata URL).
Item #2 is Adobe's IdP login URL.
Copy the metadata url (#1) by clicking the blue clipboard icon. Next, log into your Adobe Admin Console then go to the Settings tab and click the directory name.
Click the 3 dots to edit the SAML Settings.
Paste the IdP issuer (metadata) URL (field 1 below).
Go back to the ClassLink SAML console and copy #2 (the IDP Single Sign-On Service URL) then paste it in the IdP login URL field in the Adobe SAML console.
Click the Download Metadata box.
Open the metadata file, select the metadata, copy.
Next, edit the Adobe SAML app in the ClassLink SAML Console.
Locate the metadata field then paste the metadata. Scroll down, click Save.
This completes the SAML app setup.
Creating the SSO App for users
Note: Adobe does not currently support IdP or SP initiated logins. They require users to manually go to the Adobe.com login page and input your domain name "@mydistrictdomain.org" in the username field.
To get around this, let's build an SSO app that auto-populates your domain name.
Open the ClassLink Management Console, Single Sign-On, Extension Connectors. Search for the connector named "Adobe Creative Cloud (SAML Template)" and click copy.
Next, click Edit next to the new connector and change the Value field to your domain name (@mydomain.net).
Next, go to Applications>Add & Assign Apps, click Add. Fill out the fields, enable Single Sign-On, select Form Post with Extension as the type, click select then select the Extension Connector you saved in the previous step.
