  9. Complete the Basic SAML Configuration section using the following information from the Single Sign-On tab of the People & Settings page in the Sketch web app:
    • Identifier (Entity ID)Your Workspace’s Entity ID
    • Reply URL (Assertion Consumer Service URL)Your Workspace’s ACS URL
    • Sign-on URL:

    Note: Make sure that there are no spaces at the end of these fields — if there are, the SSO process will fail. Next, complete the Attributes & Claims section. Make sure you don’t use any namespace.

    The values in the right column will be specific to your organisation — make sure that you add the right information.
