SAML documentation problems

  • SonarQube version 7.9.1, SAML 2.0 Authentication for SonarQube version 1.1.0, Keycloak version 7.0.0

I’m following the instructions at

The documentation says to “Download the XML configuration file in Installations > Format Option > SAML Metadata IDPSSODescriptor”. However, Keycloak 7 doesn’t have that as an option.

I have been able to get information that matches the documentation by accessing https://keycloak/auth/realms/sonarqube/protocol/saml/descriptor. I found that URL by following documentation for the Mellon Apache authentication module. I don’t know of any other way with Keycloak 7 to retrieve the IDP data.

Hi Philip,

The example in the documentation was created using Keycloak 4, so we had some outdated information there. Thanks for finding that for us! We’ll update the example to get rid of the version-specific info.

Thanks again,
