SAML 2.0 Single Sign-On

SAML 2.0 Single Sign-On allows you to use a SAML 2.0-compliant Identity Provider for Single Sign-On to your blog.


  • Generate truly random passwords for new SAML users behind the scenes. Remove the requirement to be able to recreate that password in order to log in a user.


  • Adds the ability to map custom WordPress roles to users. (Contributed by @phille97)


  • Updates a few look-and-feel things to fit better with WP 3.8
  • Resolves an issue that was preventing the IdP from being recognized when adding IdP information manually.
  • Respects the redirect_to parameter in wp-login.php, allowing SAML logins to redirect users to any page of your choosing.
  • Adds an option to bypass SAML authentication and use the traditional method. With the option enabled, create and use a login URL like http://example.com/wp-login.php?use_sso=false


  • The plugin is feature-complete until v1.0. All updates between 0.9.0 and 1.0 will be strictly bugfixes or improvements.
  • Fewer warnings and errors when not all IdP attributes are specified.
  • If a user's group membership changes at the IdP, their WordPress role will be changed accordingly at next login.


  • Added nonces and basic type-checking to admin pages for improved security.
  • Quick access to common attributes used by popular IdP's including ADFS, OneLogin, and SimpleSAMLPHP
  • Extensive internal code improvements to improve maintainability


  • Status check lets you know when everything appears to be configured correctly.
  • Fixed an issue that prevented users from logging out if a Single Logout service was not specified.
  • Fixed an issue that caused SP settings to get out of sync when importing IdP settings from metadata.


  • IdP info can now be automatically loaded from a metadata URL.
  • Signing certificate can be automatically generated if you don't know how (or don't want to do it yourself). The generated certificate can be downloaded so you can share it with your IdP.


  • Uploading a certificate and private key is now optional, which makes IdP-initiated testing much simpler.
  • Folders and config files are created if they don't already exist, which fixes many issues with various screens being blank.


  • Moved configuration files from plugins directory to a subdirectory in uploads to ensure the plugin doesn't break itself when updated.
