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 Education Framework template from the library.
You will now see the Education Framework SAML connector in your list of applications. Copy the IDP Metadata URL and provide that to your Education Framework integration engineer. This is a unique URL for your district.
Education Framework will use this URL to establish trust with ClassLink. Once the trust is established, Education Framework will provide a metadata text file. This information needs to be added to the metadata field.
To do this, click Edit.
Locate the metadata field then paste the metadata provided by Education Framework. Click Save.
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 Education Framework 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.
