You can access your SAML console page from:
ClassLink Management Console -> Single Sign-On -> SAML Console
Launch the ClassLink SAML Console.
After you log into the 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 Frontline Education template from the library.
You will now see the Frontline Education SAML connector in your list of applications. Copy the IDP Metadata URL and provide that to your Frontline Education integration engineer. This is a unique URL for your district.
Frontline Education will use this URL to establish trust with ClassLink. Once the trust is established, Frontline Education will provide a metadata text file. This information needs to be added to the metadata field.
To do this, click Edit.
Locate the metadata field then paste the metadata provided by Frontline Education. Click Save.
Locate the Login URL field then input your LaunchPad custom login URL.
Once you've completed updating the SAML settings, scroll down to Save.
Next, build the SSO SAML apps in the ClassLink Management Console!
From the ClassLink SAML Console, click on the drop-down menu arrow and click Copy IDP Initiate Login URL.
From the ClassLink Management Console, go to Add & Assign Apps, click new. Input the name of the Frontline Education app and complete the fields as shown below. Remember to turn on Single Sign-On, select SAML as the type, then paste the URL you copied from the ClassLink SAML console.
