How miniOrange SAML 2.0 Single Sign-On Solution works for John Hopkins Medical Center
Without miniOrange SSO Solution for Multisite support, you have to do idp configuration on each site individually and add service provider configuration for each site in the IDP.
Benefits of using miniOrange SSO Solution:
1. Easy to integrate- If you have a site that keeps growing. For example - if you are a university and the site is for students, then choosing this option will save you the time to configure the solution on each new site that is added to your multisite network.
you want to give role specific access to different users in each site. This solution will allow you to configure role mapping for each site individually.
2. Easy to install- You only have to install and configure the solution once. This is useful if you are using hosting providers like WP-Engine which do not allow installation of any external software to the server.
3. Easy to manage- If you want to update any configuration in future , you just need to update on 1 site at network level and not on all sites hosted under that network.
4. Cost effective- Installation of miniOrange sso service on each site with a separate license is a costly affair. In contrast, single product license with multisite support costs just a fraction of that.
