SAML Single Sign On (SSO) into SonarQube using Oracle Enterprise Manager
SonarQube SAML plugin gives the ability to enable SAML Single Sign On for the SonarQube. Here we will go through a guide to configure SSO between SonarQube and Oracle. By the end of this guide, Oracle users should be able to log in and register to the SonarQube Server.
You can refer the steps from the video or documentation below to configure your IDP with SonarQube.
Step 1: Setup Oracle Enterprise Manager as Identity Provider
All the information required to configure the Oracle Enterprise Manager as IDP i.e. plugin’s metadata is given in the Service Provider Info tab of the miniOrange plugin.
Login to your Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) Console. From side menu go to Identity and AccessOracle Identity Federation (OIF).
Select the Oracle Identity Federation dropdown from top. Go to AdministrationService Provider.
In the Service Provider section, select the SAML 2.0 tab.
Check Map User via NameID.
Under Protocol Settings, check EnableSAML 2.0Protocol.
Configure the additional SAML settings.
Now, Select the Oracle Identity Federation dropdown from top. Go to AdministrationSecurity and Trust.
Navigate to the Provider Metadata tab.
Select Identity Provider in Provider Type dropdown and click Generate button to download metadata.
Use the above metadata for further steps.
Step 2: Configure SonarQube as Service Provider.
Fetch the Identity Provider (IdP) Details
After configuring the IdP, get its metadata to configure SonarQube as a Service Provider(SP)
Copy the following details from the IdP metadata and paste them into the corresponding text fields in the SonarQube plugin
1. IdP Entity ID
2. Login URL
3. X.509 Certificate
Save all the details.
Once you have filled all the IdP details, go to Administration >>Configuration >>miniOrange SAML Support and then click on the Test Configuration tab.
It will show you the IdP login page. Enter your IdP credentials and log in.
If all the configurations are correct, it will show you the user details received from the IdP.
If the test fails, check if you have missed out any steps or try to debug through SonarQube Logs.
To be able to troubleshoot through logs, first you'll have to set a higher log level in your SonarQube application.
To do so, go to the SonarQube Dashboard >>Administration >>System.
Under the system settings, you'll find an option to change the log's level. Select DEBUG and save it. Now try to configure the plugin.
If you face any problem during configuration, go to %SONARQUBE_HOME% / logs directory.
Find and open the web.log file. Go through the logs recorded.
You'll find the stacktrace of performed actions, along with date and time information.
