The branding section lets you customize your display so that it matches your brand.

Enable SSO/ SAML Integration

Single sign-on is a premium feature of the Rockstar Learning Platform. If you have purchased this feature, you will be able to toggle “yes” under “Enable Single Sign-On'' to enable this feature. Once on, complete the following steps:

 

Step 1: Provide URL of Your Identity Provider

In the text field provided, add the URL for your company’s single sign-on (SSO) identity provider. 

Note: The URL must begin with “http://” or “https://”

Step 2: Download RLP Metadata

Select “Download Metadata” to download the Rockstar Learning Platform’s metadata. You will need to use this metadata to link the Rockstar Learning Platform with your SSO identity provider. 

Step 3: Paste Provider’s Metadata

Paste your XML file SAML metadata into the text field provided. 

Step 4: Redirect to IdP (Optional)

Selecting the “Automatically redirect to IdP” option will take learners to the identity provider (IdP) login page without showing them the Rockstar Learning Platform’s login page. If “Allow Direct Login” is selected, learners will be able to log in to the platform using the Rockstar Learning Platform’s login page. 

Note: If “Allow Direct Login” is selected, learners will be able to log in and access the platform without needing to log in to the identity provider. This option is often used by administrators who want to make changes without going through the IdP.

Step 5: Set Additional Options (Optional)

The Rockstar Learning Platform often sends emails to learners with links that take them back to the platform (e.g. enrollment notifications, due soon reminders, registration links, etc.). Toggling on “Allow SSO authentication of email links” will redirect these emailed links to the identity provider’s login page.  

Note: If a learner was previously logged in via SSO, then the emailed links will take them to the Rockstar Learning Platform. They will not have to log in through the identity provider again. 

Test Mode: Togging on “Test Mode” will display attributes sent with SAML assertions upon login for debugging purposes.

Step 6: Save
