Audience: ClassLink Administrator
You can access your SAML console page from:
ClassLink Management Console -> Single Sign-On -> SAML Console
Launch the ClassLink SAML Console.
After you log into the SAML Console, click on COPY EXISTING from the top of the navigation menu. This will present a list of pre-configured SAML connections.
Copy the Apex Learning template from the library.
You will now see the Apex Learning SAML connector in your list of applications. Copy the IDP Metadata URL and provide that to your Apex Learning integration engineer. This is a unique URL for your district.
Apex Learning will use this URL to establish trust with ClassLink. Once the trust is established, Apex Learning will provide a metadata text file. This information needs to be added to the metadata field.
To do this, click Edit.
Locate the metadata text link and click on it to change the field from URL to text. Paste the metadata text provided by Apex Learning.
Scroll down to the bottom to edit the NameId value. This is the value you'll use to authenticate your users into Apex Learning with ClassLink.
- login id (ClassLink username)
- email (ClassLink email)
- OR:userSourcedId (sourcedId value for users)
- OR:userIdentifier (identifier value for users)
Also, locate the Login URL field then input your LaunchPad custom login URL.
Note: Not sure what's your custom login URL? 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.
Next, build the SSO SAML apps in the ClassLink Management Console!
From the ClassLink SAML Console, click on the drop-down menu arrow and click Copy IDP Initiate Login URL.
From the ClassLink Management Console, go to Add & Assign Apps, click New.
Input the name of the Apex Learning app and complete the fields as shown below. Remember to turn on Single Sign-On, select SAML as the type, then paste the URL you copied from the ClassLink SAML console.
