  7. Use the EntityID and ACS URL values that you got when setting up SAML SSO in your Workspace. Remember these are unique to your Workspace.

    • Set the ACS URL value in the ACS URL field.

    The rest of the fields should be filed as the following:

    • Start URL
    • Signed Response: tick the checkbox
    • Name ID: Basic information - Primary Email
    • Name ID Format: UNSPECIFIED

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