  9. In section 3: SAML Signing Certificate, copy the App Federation Metadata URL and send it to the O’Reilly platform integration team at [email protected]

    They’ll use those details to finish the configuration on the O’Reilly side of the SSO integration.

  10. In order to use the SSO connection, the new application must be assigned to users or groups. You can do this by selecting Users and groups on the left menu, then Add user/group. You may want to only add a test user to confirm the connection is working. Then you can add the rest of the users or groups you want to provide with O’Reilly access.
