Enable SAML in the Lacework Console

Select Upload identity provider data or Manually enter identity provider data.

To upload an identity provider meta data file, click Choose File.

To input identity provider data manually, complete the following fields:

  • Identity Provider
  • Identity Provider Issuer Entity ID
  • Identity provider SAML 2.0 URL
  • Upload Your Certificate File
    The X.509 certificate file must be in PEM format.

Just-in-Time User Provisioning

SAML authentication supports Just-in-Time User Provisioning (JIT). Enabling this option allows for on-the-fly creation of a team member the first time they try to log in. This eliminates the need to create team members in Lacework in advance. For example, if you recently added an employee to your company, you don't need to manually create the team member in Lacework.

Before you can use SAML JIT user provisioning, you must add and define additional attributes in the SAML provider. See SAML JIT Overview for more information.

Add Lacework as a Service Provider

You must also add Lacework as a service provider with your identity provider. Adding Lacework as a service provider requires the following values.

Service Provider Entity ID
Assertion Consumer Service URL or
NameId Formaturn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.1:nameid-format:emailAddress
