Which usecase scenario to use


I had the following situation and i am confused after reading several articles what usecase senario to use.

We had a link to other partner website from our web application. the user was already authenticated here on our side and try to acces our partner website. they had there own logins on the partner site so for the first ever time the user shud see the login screen on partner site and then onwards shud login seamlessly.

shud it be IDP initiated or SP initaiated SSO. it wud be appreciated it you give steps that i need to do from my side.



Hi Anne, IDP initiated is designed for your use case. When authenticated to your site, after clicking on the partner link, the user will be sent over to the partner 'along' with a SAML assertion.
