Setting Up SAML Single Sign On

There are two parts to setting up SAML single sign on for your users. 

User Setup

  1. Match Student Usernames: Review the student usernames you've populated (or a planning to populate) in the TCI Subscriptions Admin tool, and verify they match a field you can provide to TCI via your District's Identity Provider. If they do not, you must update student usernames in TCI to match a field you can provide.

  2. Update Attribute/Parameter title: In the SAML configuration's Attributes/Parameters, the field you are using to populate TCI's student username field must be titled 'username' in order for students to successfully log in.

  3. Verify Teacher Emails Match: TCI uses teacher emails for account authentication for teachers. Review the teacher emails in the TCI Subscriptions Admin tool, and verify they match the teacher emails you are providing to TCI from the District's Identity Provider. If they do not, you must update teacher emails in TCI to match what you are using in your District's Identity Provider.

Configuration

  1. Provide us with your metadata XML by emailing it to info@teachtci.com
  2. Once we have your metadata XML, we will provide you with the Entity ID and ACS URL.
