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 Naviance template from the library.
You will now see the Naviance SAML connector in your list of applications. Copy the IDP Single Sign On Service URL. This is a unique URL for your district.
Click on the 3 dots under the Tasks column and click Download IDP Certificate. Keep in mind that the file will be downloaded as a .crt file, and Naviance requires it to be in .cer format. To convert, Double-click on the .crt file to open it into the certificate display.
Select the Details tab, then select the Copy to file button. Click Next on the Certificate Wizard.
Select Base-64 encoded X.509 (.CER), then Next. Select Browse (to locate a destination) and type in the filename. Select Next then Finished.
Naviance will use the IDP Single Sign On Service URL and IDP certificate file to establish a trust with ClassLink. Once the trust is established, Naviance 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 Naviance. Click Save.
Locate the Login URL field then input your LaunchPad custom login URL.
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 Naviance 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.
