ComponentSpace cloud application

You must be signed in as a super administrator for this task.

Using Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), your users can use their Google Cloud credentials to sign in to enterprise-cloud applications.

Set up SSO via SAML for ComponentSpace

Here's how to set up single sign-on (SSO) via SAML for the ComponentSpace® application.

Step 1: Get Google identity provider (IdP) information
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Security and then Set up single sign-on (SSO).

    To see Security, you might have to click More controls at the bottom. 

  3. In the Set up single sign-on (SSO) section:
    • Copy and save the SSO URL.
    • Copy and save the Entity ID.
    • Download the Certificate.

In the next step, you send this information to ComponentSpace via email. After they respond, you return to the Admin console in Step 3 below to finish SSO configuration.

Step 2: Send IdP information to ComponentSpace

Send an email to ComponentSpace Support (support@componentspace.com) requesting that SSO be enabled for your account. Include the following identity provider (IdP) information copied in Step 1:

  • SSO URL 
  • Entity ID 
  • Attach the certificate you downloaded in Step 1 as a text file attachment to the email.

ComponentSpace will process your request and provide you with ACS URL and Entity ID values. Use these values to finish configuring SSO in the Admin console in Step 3 below.

Step 3: Finish SSO configuration in Admin console
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Apps and then SAML Apps.

    To see Apps on the Home page, you might have to click More controls at the bottom. 

  3. Click Add Add at bottom right.
  4. Locate and click ComponentSpace in the application list.
  5. Click Next.

    The Basic information window shows the Application name and Description seen by users.

  6. Click Next.
  7. On the Service Provider Details page, replace the default ACS URL and Entity ID values with the ACS URL and Entity ID values received from ComponentSpace Support.
  8. Click Finish.
Step 4: Enable the ComponentSpace app
  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Apps and then SAML Apps.

    To see Apps on the Home page, you might have to click More controls at the bottom. 

  3. Select ComponentSpace.
  4. At the top right of the gray box, click Edit Service Compose.

  5. To apply settings to all organizations, click On for everyone or Off for everyone, and then click Save

  6. To apply settings to individual organizational units, do the following: 

    • At the left, select the organizational unit that contains the users whose settings you want to change.
    • To change the setting, select On or Off.
    • To keep the setting the same, even if the parent setting changes, click Override.
    • If the organization's status is already Overridden, choose an option:
      Inherit—Reverts to the same setting as its parent.
      Save—Saves your new setting (even if the parent setting changes).

    Learn more about the organizational structure.

  7. Ensure that your ComponentSpace user account email IDs match those in your Google domain.
Step 5: Verify that the SSO is working
  1. Open https://www.componentspace.com/SAML/NET/SP/ and attempt to sign in. You should be automatically redirected to the Google sign-in page.
  2. Enter your username and password.

After your sign-in credentials are authenticated, you're automatically redirected back to ComponentSpace.
