  8. Complete the Basic SAML configuration with the following information from the configuration page in Sketch:

    • Identifier (Entity ID): [Your Workspace’s Entity ID]
    • Reply URL (Assertion Consumer Service URL): [Your Workspace’s ACS URL]

    Note: Make sure that there are no spaces at the end of these fields — otherwise, the SSO process will fail.

    Note: If you are using Safari, you might have trouble typing in the text field. We’d recommend trying another browser.

    Then complete the User Attributes & Claims. Make sure you don’t use any namespace.

    The values in the right column may be different in your case — make sure that you add the right information.
