Organizations utilizing Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) can configure ScaleFT to authenticate against IDCS using SAML.
SAML can only be configured in ScaleFT during signup, so to get started using IDCS authentication create a new team and choose SAML authentication when prompted.
Once you reach the SAML configuration step in the ScaleFT signup process you’ll need to add ScaleFT to IDCS.
To add ScaleFT to IDCS log in to IDCS as an administrator, browse to Applications, click “Add” and choose “SAML Application”. Give the application a name (typically “ScaleFT”) and optionally an icon.
