Setting up SSL with SAML on Windows Server


I am currently on v8.1 of SonarQube on Windows Server. I would like to setup SSL for the current SonarQube installation. Also we are planning to setup SAML (SecureAuth) immediately upon setting up a successful SSL connection. So I have been researching how to do this. I have found many confusing threads that does not seem to give a clear cut answer to this combination. They are in summary, as follows:

So having seen all this information now leads me to my question, what is the way I should be achieving my goal of setting up SonarQube with SSL and SAML with my current environment?

Thanks so much for your help, in advance.


Hey there.

This guide seems to get most people on their way.


Thanks so much for this guide. I will check it out and see if I can get both SSL and SAML implemented with it.


p.s. Sorry for the late response. Have been distracted with many other things going on.

@Colin_SonarSource - so, I have now read the article and I was wondering about the architecture. Is this essentially using IIS to redirect http traffic to https? If that is the case, then in essence, the current web server (apache) cannot be configured to support https? So this is the workaround?

Thanks Colin.
