Some SAML applications, such as ShareFile, Google Apps, and Echosign, require a certificate to communicate with App Controller. After you add the application in App Controller and configure application settings, you download a SAML certificate from App Controller. When you configure settings in the SAML application, you upload the certificate to the application. By doing so, you ensure secure connections between the application and App Controller.
App Controller supports installation of one SAML certificate on App Controller. When you first install App Controller, a SAML certificate is created and appears in the Certificates panel.
The SAML certificate is called AppController.example.com. If you want to use a custom SAML certificate, you need to upload a .pem certificate that contains only the certificate and private key.
When you install the new SAML certificate, App Controller removes any previously installed certificates, including the AppController.example.com SAML certificate created during App Controller installation. Only one SAML certificate can reside on App Controller.
You can download a SAML certificate by using one of the two following methods:
Only supply the password if you are backing up the certificate and storing it on your computer.
Select this option only if you are backing up the certificate.
