Launch the ClassLink 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 Adobe Creative Cloud template from the library.
You will now see the Adobe SAML connector in your list of applications (Dashboard).
Adobe requires an XML file version of our IDP metadata URL. To obtain the file, right-click on the metadata IDP URL and select "Save Link As":
In the SAML Configuration for ClassLink on Adobe's side, you can download Adobe's SP metadata file and upload the IDP metadata XML file that you saved from the ClassLink SAML console.
Open the metadata file, select the metadata, copy.
Next, edit the Adobe SAML app in the ClassLink SAML Console. You can do this by clicking on the 3 dots under the Tasks column of the SAML Console Dashboard and clicking Edit. Locate the metadata field then paste the metadata. Scroll down, click Save.
This completes the SAML app setup.
Creating the SSO App for users
Note: Currently, Adobe does not support IdP initiated logins. They require users to manually go to the Adobe.com login page and input your domain name "@mydistrictdomain.org" in the username field.
To get around this, let's build an SSO app that auto-populates your domain name.
Open the ClassLink Management Console, Single Sign-On, Extension Connectors. Search for the connector named "Adobe Creative Cloud (SAML Template)" and click copy.
Next, click Edit next to the new connector and change the Value field to your domain name (@mydomain.net).
Next, go to Applications>Add & Assign Apps, click Add. Fill out the fields, enable Single Sign-On, select Form Post with Extension as the type, click select then select the Extension Connector you saved in the previous step.
