Odd experiences
By , for WP 4.3.1

I tried installing this on a IIS box using latest WordPress (4.3.1) and found that the plugin seemed to remember settings after plugin was deleted and reinstalled.

I was unable to get this plugin to work, it seems to use .htaccess files rather than the web.config I needed. Although the keys were saved to the right folder, the metadata.php/1 file returned an error and the .cer file was returning 404 through the browser although a text file in the same folder rendered ok.

It's a shame as this seems to be the only SAML plugin that isn't reliant on a third party app / sign up. - In my case my client had their own ID provider.

Works fine
By , for WP 4.3.1

This plugin works fine on all our sites. We use simple SAML php as IdP.
Installation is quite simple and we've seen no errors up to this point.

Didn't test it with multisite.

This plugin works, but not on Multisite
By , for WP 4.2.4

Anno 2015 a WordPress plugin should work properly within a Multisite setup.

This plugin doesn't work at all in multisite. It's a pain to get it to work/setup - too bad!

Wasn't able to use the plugin
By , for WP 4.2.2

At our company we exercise SAML / ADFS. We found that this plugin kept going into a loop attempting to auth over and over. ADFS successfully auth'd and every was coming back to WordPress fine. So asked our identify team attempt to config the plugin and they too failed to have any success. NOTE: We where testing all of this on Google's Compute Engine but actually found GCE to be a bit buggy. At one point GCE ran out of resources when we attempted to restart WordPress. Which seems crazy. Anyway... Ultimately, this was a let down for management which in the end decided not to use WordPress for CMS.

Great Plugin, Needs TLC
By ,

This is the best SAML 2.0 plugin available for WordPress. Unfortunately, it needs a LOT of handholding for integration, especially on Multisite. It works, if you're willing to put in the extra time for manually updating config files and MySQL tables. It is currently not compatible with Multisite without these manual changes. For enterprise solutions like ours, migrations between DEV and PROD environments are a real nightmare. Great core plugin, just needs a lot of updates to function as advertised.

Great Plugin That Works as Expected
By , for WP 3.5.1

It's a new plugin, so documentation is lacking at the moment. It will require a bit of SAML config knowledge if you want to get this up and running quickly. Having said that, ktbartholomew (developer) is super responsive, and will be able to help you get it up and running in no time! Once up and running, it works as expected. I have no issues recommending this plugin if you need SAML SSO for your WordPress blog.

Keep up the good work!
