I have an application that uses SSO and needs to contact an LDAP server to retrieve whether the user exists or not. For that, I thought to use SAML as a means to link the SSO token user information with the LDAP user. However, I don't really know if this is feasible at all.

Is it possible to somehow sync LDAP with SAML? What would the best way be for this scenario?

Thank you.

  • Generally, you use something like SAML to get outside your walled garden to an external service. Are you the Identity Provider (IdP) or Service Provider (SP), or both? Where does the "SSO" take place? What about the user authentication that generates the SAML assertion?
